Garbo Ashes To Be Buried in Sweden
May. 14, 1999
STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) _ Greta Garbo's ashes will be buried in the city of her birth.
The reclusive film star died in New York City in 1990 at age 84. She was cremated and the ashes have been kept at a New York mortuary while her niece and sole heir, Gray Reisfield, decided what to do with them.
She has decided on Skogskyrkogaarden, the cemetery in Stockholm where Garbo's parents are buried, she said in a statement Friday.
The ashes will be interred June 17 after a small private ceremony in a cemetery chapel.
