Elizabeth Taylor Late Funeral
December 27, 2011 by staff
Her publicist tells Lifeline Live in a statement that Taylor wanted to be late for her own funeral:
The service was scheduled to begin at 2 pm but at Miss Taylor’s request started late. Miss Taylor had left instructions that it was to begin at least 15 minutes later than publicly scheduled, with the announcement, “She even wanted to be late for her own funeral.”
The multi-denominational service, officiated by Rabbi Jerry Cutler at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Glendale, Calif., lasted about an hour. Taylor, who died Wednesday at age 79, was laid to rest in the Great Mausoleum, beneath a soaring marble Michelangelo angel with family and close friends in attendance. Taylor is not right next to Michael Jackson, but near him.
The casket was closed and draped with a blanket of abundant, fragrant gardenias, violets, and lily of the valley.
