The late, great movie icon was buried in the cemetery's Great Mausoleum, where celebrities Michael Jackson, Carole Lombard and Clark Gable were laid to rest.

Taylor, 79, died of congestive heart failure at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Wednesday (23Mar11).

The actress converted to Judaism in the 1950s and Jewish tradition calls for a burial as soon as possible following the death.

The private family funeral was conducted by Taylor's longtime friend Rabbi Jerry Cutler.

In related news, the lights on the marquees of Broadway theatres in New York will be dimmed in Taylor's memory on Friday night (25Mar11).

Paul Libin, Chairman of The Broadway League and Executive Vice President of Jujamcyn Theaters, says, "With her remarkable talent and extraordinary beauty, Elizabeth Taylor lit up the Broadway stage the same way she lit up the silver screen."
