Donna Summer
's family has scheduled a memorial for the Disco Queen -- and TMZ has learned, it will take place next Wednesday in Nashville.

It is not a public memorial. The memorial will only be attended by close friends and family.

Donna and her family moved to Nashville in 1994 -- and sources tell TMZ, Donna's family chose the city specifically because it was her home and was always extremely close to her heart. Nashville's also a cultural epicenter in the music world, so it just makes sense.

TMZ broke the story ... Donna passed away today in Florida due to complications from lung cancer.

She was 63.

That had to be the most disgusting ,apalling trash I have ever witnessed on TV. Your segment on Donna Summer was was out of line. To make very bad jokes regarding her death was totaly inappropriate and you should apologize to the Summer family and your audience. I dont think anyone found that entertaining at all. You people are out of control. You feel as if you can trash anyone at anytime. See how you like it if someone makes fun of your dead mom or dad or child. I dont think you would........
