The household of designer Kate Spade has been thrown into mourning once more as her father has died on the eve of her funeral.
Kate Spade dedicated suicide on June 5, 2018, at the age of 55 and was buried on Thursday, June 21. Sadly, hours earlier than mourners gathered at a funeral for the purse designer, her household was hit with one other unthinkable tragedy.
The household says her father died on the eve of her funeral. The household launched an announcement Thursday saying Earl Brosnahan, Jr. died Wednesday night time at his residence in Kansas Metropolis, Missouri. The household says he was 89 and had been in failing well being.
The assertion reads:
We’re deeply saddened to announce that Katy’s father, Earl F. Brosnahan, Jr. (Frank), handed away final night time at age 89.
He had been in failing well being of late and was heartbroken over the latest loss of life of his beloved daughter. He was at residence and surrounded by household at the time of his passing.
The assertion was launched as a funeral started for his daughter Thursday afternoon. Spade has now been laid to relaxation in Kansas Metropolis, the place she was born. The funeral service held at Our Woman of Perpetual Assist Redemptorist Church.
