Eunice Shriver Kennedy's funeral service took place on Friday August 14 at Saint Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Hyannis, Massachusetts.
Shriver's husband Sargent and their five children were pallbearers at the funeral service. And her son-in-law California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger presented a responsorial psalm at the church.
Shriver's son Anthony said, Through all the chaos and all the craziness that's my family and is my mother that at the end of the day she picked up the phone every single day and called me.
Her children, Maria, Mark, Anthony, Timothy and Robert delivered the eulogy.
Eunice Kennedy Shriver, who emerged from a powerful male-dominated political family to found the Special Olympics and become a leading advocate of the mentally disabled, died on Tuesday at the age of 88.
Shriver, the sister of former President John F. Kennedy, died about 2 a.m. local time at Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis, the Massachusetts town on Cape Cod synonymous with the Kennedy dynasty.
