A public memorial service is set for 4 p.m. Sunday at Pleasant Gift Missionary Baptist Church, allowing the community to mourn the loss of Jennifer Hudson's mother, Darnell Hudson Donerson, brother Jason Hudson, and nephew Julian King.
"The Hudson family welcomes anyone who wishes to attend and pay their respects to these three beloved members of the Chicago community," says a Hudson family statement.
Hudson nor her sister, Julia, mother of King, are expected to attend the public observance, according to people.com. The memorial will be preceded by a private service.
Hudson grew up attending Pleasant Gift, where she sang in the church choir.
