Elizabeth Taylor buried at Westwood Cemetery

Actress and Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor, who died last week from complications stemming from congestive heart failure, has been buried at the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles, next to her mother and father.  Taylor is in good company at Westwood, as many of Hollywood’s greatest stars are buried there.  Taylor’s family crypt is located in close proximity to Marilyn Monroe‘s grave, and other big names like Dean Martin, Walter Matthau, and Farrah Fawcett are also buried nearby.

The funeral was a who’s who of Hollywood names, and many stars, including Elton John, have praised Taylor’s work not only as an actress, but as an activist for AIDS back when being an AIDS activist was a very uncool thing to do.  Taylor was 79.
