WASHINGTON (AP) — A funeral Mass will be held in Washington for Kara Kennedy, the oldest child of the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy.

Kara Kennedy died last Friday at age 51, collapsing after her daily workout at a health club.

A funeral Mass is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Wednesday at Holy Trinity Church.

Kara Kennedy never sought elected office like many in her family, but she helped with her father's presidential and Senate campaigns. She worked as a filmmaker and in television and was active in an array of causes ranging from the arts to fighting fetal alcohol syndrome.
