(CBS/AP) LONDON - Updated 2:05 p.m. EDT
Friends and family said goodbye to Amy Winehouse on Tuesday with prayers, tears, laughter and song at a funeral ceremony in London.
The singer's father, mother and brother and close friends, along with band members and celebrities - including musician/producer Mark Ronson and media personality Kelly Osbourne, her hair piled beehive-high in an echo of the singer's signature style - were among several hundred mourners attending the service at Edgwarebury Cemetery in north London.
Fans and photographers thronged the lane outside, but the funeral was for several hundred friends and family only.
The Jewish service was led by a rabbi and included prayers in English and Hebrew and reminiscences from Winehouse's father, Mitch Winehouse. The cab driver and jazz singer, who helped foster his daughter's love of music, ended his eulogy with the words "Goodnight, my angel, sleep tight. Mummy and Daddy love you ever so much."
It ended with a rendition of Carole King's "So Far Away," one of Winehouse's favorite songs.
"Mitch was funny, he told some great stories from childhood about how headstrong she was, and clearly the family and friends recognized the stories and laughed along," said family spokesman Chris Goodman.
"He stressed so many times she was happier now than she had ever been and he spoke about her boyfriend and paid tribute to a lot of people in her life."
According to the Press Association news agency, Mitch Winehouse said during the ceremony that his daughter was trying to overcome her addictions, having told him: "Dad I've had enough, I can't stand the look on your and the family's faces anymore."
He said he planned to set up a foundation in his daughter's name to help people struggling with addiction.
"Knowing she wasn't depressed ... knowing she passed away happy, it makes us all feel better," he said.
Close family and friends - including Winehouse's recent boyfriend, Reg Traviss - moved on to Golders Green Crematorium, where the singer was cremated.
Several mourners, including Ronson - who co-produced Winehouse's breakthrough album "Back to Black" - looked emotional as they left the red brick structure, which has seen the cremations of thousands of ordinary Londoners and many celebrities, including psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, comedian Peter Sellers and drummer Keith Moon of The Who.
The family was then due to hold two days of shiva, a Jewish traditional period of mourning.
Winehouse, who had battled alcohol and drug addiction, was found dead on Saturday at her London home. She was 27.
An autopsy held Mondaythe cause of the singer's death. Police are awaiting the results of toxicology tests, which will take two to four weeks.
On Monday the singer's father, mother and brother visited the house where she died,who had left flowers and cards.
"I can't tell you what this means to us - it really is making this a lot easier for us," her father, Mitch Winehouse, told fans. "We're devastated and I'm speechless but thanks for coming."
"Amy was about one thing and that was love," he added. "Her whole life was devoted to her family and her friends and to you guys as well."
Winehouse released only two albums in her short career - winning five Grammy awards for the second, "Back to Black" - and often made headlines because of drug and alcohol abuse, eating disorders, destructive relationships and abortive performances.
Since her death, her records have re-entered album charts around the world, and tributes have poured in from fans and fellow musicians.
George Michael called her "the most soulful vocalist this country has ever seen," and soul singer Adele said she "paved the way for artists like me and made people excited about British music again."
