Annie and Tali Lennox attend Ian Jones' funeral

Annie and Tali Lennox were among mourners at the funeral of Tali's boyfriend Ian Jones on Saturday (15.08.15).

The Eurythmics singer supported her 22-year-old daughter at the ceremony in his home state of Pennsylvania, just a week after the couple were involved in a tragic kayaking accident on the Hudson River in New York City.

The pair's kayak capsized on August 8 and while Tali was rescued by a nearby boat, Ian -- who was 32 -- was swept underwater by the powerful current. His body was discovered three days later.

300 mourners gathered at the solemn ceremony including Tali's sister Lola, who arrived with Annie.

According to PEOPLE.com, Ian's body will be cremated and his ashes spread in Yardley, Pennsylvania. A memorial service will also be held in New York, organised by Tali.

Tali recently paid tribute to her boyfriend on Instagram, writing: "My heart is shattered. My best friend, my soul mate, my partner in crime & creativity, the LOVE & LIGHT of my life is no longer with me. All the love that has been sent to me is giving me the strength to get through this. I know that he is so happy that I was safely rescued. Let us honor & celebrate this beautiful soul & keep following the light. (sic)"
