Marilyn Monroe's funeral..... sad fact: marilyn was set to remarry dimaggio right before her death, actually the day of her funeral was to have been the date of her re-marriage to joe ... 8/8/62. hes quoted saying "instead of kissing you at the alter, i kissed you in your casket." so sad.
Marilyn Monroe's funeral took place at 1:00pm on August 8, 1962, at the Westwood Village Mortuary Chapel on the grounds of the Westwood Memorial Cemetery. She was buried in what was known at that time as the "Cadillac of caskets" - a hermetically sealing antique-silver-finished solid bronze "masterpiece" casket lined with champagne colored satin-silk.
