Marilyn Monroe’s Funeral Westwood Memorial Cemetery, Los Angeles, Wednesday, August 8, 1962. 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. He's quoted as saying, "instead of kissing you at the altar, I kissed you in your casket." SO SAD!
Fact: Joe DiMaggio took care of all of Marilyn Monroe's funeral arrangements. Her casket was solid bronze with champagne silk lining. Her makeup was done as previously promised by Allen "Whitney" Snider. Marilyn wore her favorite green Emilio Pucci dress and in her hands were a beautiful small bouquet of pink teacup roses.
