April 28, 2006, Newsletter Issue #59: Friends and Fans Gather at Marilyn´s Grave

Tip of the Week

August 1999. Friends and fans of Marilyn Monroe gathered on the 37th anniversary of her death Thursday to remember the woman known to some off-screen as Norma Jean. Seventy-five people attended a memorial service at Westwood Village Memorial Park, where Monroe was buried in 1962. The service included remarks by Hollywood producer Stanley Rubin and photographer George Barris, who took the last pictures of Monroe on a beach in nearby Santa Monica. It ended with a tape of an eulogy by her late acting coach-mentor Lee Strasberg. When it was over, the assembled throng paid their respects at Monroe´s crypt, marked only by a metal plate giving her name and dates of birth and death and surrounded for the day by bouquets of flowers.
