Elizabeth Taylor Laid to Rest
Movie star Elizabeth Taylor was laid to rest Thursday at Forest Lawn Cemetery.
Some 50 members of Taylor’s family mourned the actress in a one-hour private funeral service at the cemetery famous for being the final resting place of many Hollywood celebrities, including Taylor’s close friend, Michael Jackson.
Five black stretch limousines transported Taylor’s family to the funeral, but no procession was held. Officials said the family decided to stay at the cemetery after the funeral.
Taylor, who turned 79 last month, died early Wednesday of congestive heart failure while surrounded by her four children at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
She had been hospitalized for about six weeks.
Taylor was a two-time Oscar winner, who was married eight times to seven husbands.
The legendary actress was a favorite of many.
