This is late, but anyway.....

I was there the day of her burial. Count Basie arrived in a stretch white limo. Many other entertainment greats attended.

The grave diggers then were seminarians from Dunwoodie. The regular workers were on strike and Cardinal Spellman sent the seminarians to break the strike.
