A significant gathering is expected to bid her farewell, and due to the current COVID restrictions, not everyone who would like to pay their respects in person will be able to do so.
Members of the public are urged not to attend the church; instead, they may view the procession as it leaves the church. The community should form a socially distanced line along either side of Bridge Street (between Mort and Short streets), from 1.30pm.
Police have also encouraged members of the community to fly blue balloons out the front of their premises on Thursday morning.
