The new issue of In Touch, on newsstands now, shares all the details inside Jennifer Aniston’s tearful goodbye — and unusual funeral for her estranged mother Nancy Dow.

The mag has exclusively learned that the May 27th service for Nancy was held at her North Hollywood apartment just two days after her death.

“Nancy’s bed had been moved from her bedroom into the living room, so that’s where the service was held,” a family insider exclusively reveals to In Touch.

“The whole thing was strange,” the family insider explains, noting that a casually dressed female minister led the service.

One of the most unusual parts? The family insider tells In Touch that the minister described a bizarre and unexpected ritual: “She discussed shrouding Nancy’s body — wrapping it.”

“Nancy’s body was propped up in her bed. She was dressed nicely and had makeup on,” the insider exclusively says of the scene at the evening funeral. “There was a blanket up to her waist, and her hands were crossed and resting on top of her chest.”

Jen quietly took it all in with husband, Justin Theroux, by her side. Also paying their respects, the family insider tells In Touch, was Nancy’s second ex-husband and Jen’s father, John Aniston, as well as Jen’s half brother, John Melick.
