Death, Funerals, and Sukkot

So, my Bubbie is going to die soon, aka she might be dead by the time I finish writing this post, I don’t know. Won’t know until the morning. My family is also reform.

I know that as Sukkot is a major holiday, certain rules and laws get overridden/are different. I know that if a death happens shortly before Sukkot, Shiva gets overridden as long as you’ve done Shiva for a few days.

As it is the middle of Sukkot, how does that effect death and Shiva? Sukkot also ends on Shabbat, so does this mean that the funeral and everything won’t be able to happen until Shabbat and Sukkot are over, so about a week?

Thank you for answering my questions.
