Jim Carrey Cathriona White Funeral: Carries Casket, The funeral of Jim Carrey’s ex-girlfriend has taken place in Ireland with the Hollywood star among the mourners.
The actor, who helped carry the casket, joined Cathriona White’s family and friends in the village of Cappawhite in Co Tipperary, where she was buried beside her late father Pat.
The 30-year-old make-up artist was found dead in a house in California on September 28 with Carrey describing her death as like being “hit with a lightning bolt”.
One of those who travelled with the movie star to the funeral stressed he was “here to grieve”.
White’s funeral Mass took place at Our Lady of Fatima Church, in her home village.
Father Tadhg Furlong, parish priest, said White’s family and friends are faced with a life cut short, a vision not fulfilled, a dream not realised.
“Cathriona’s approach to life was to take on, to challenge the county, the country, the world,” the priest told mourners.
“You remember the outgoing personality – the strong-willed, determined character.”
“Cathriona was a light to so many. Something of the light has gone out. Yet much remains.
“The light continues to shine.”
Meanwhile, her step-sister Sarah also paid a glowing tribute in her emotional eulogy.
She said: “Cathriona had such an amazing capacity to love and to be loved.”
“We can take some comfort in the knowledge that Cathriona and Pat are together again. She is at peace.
“We need to find comfort for each other. There is no easy fix for grief. Particularly when we have lost somebody so young with so much left to give.
“But to paraphrase the song ‘Oh, the sharp knife of a short life, send me away with the words of a lovesong’.”
Sarah also said the love she has for her sister remains undimmed.
She reflected: “Thankfully, love is not as fickle and unpredictable as life is. As long as you are loved, you are here. You are so loved.”
White moved to Los Angeles in 2009 and took roles as an extra on a television show before working behind the scenes.
Carrey, 53, dated her for a while in 2012 and they were pictured hand in hand in New York earlier this year.
Her death is being treated as suicide with the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office leading the investigation.
