Elizabeth Taylor To Be Buried Today
Elizabeth Taylor
Elizabeth Taylor, who converted to Judaism for her marriages to Mike Todd and Eddie Fisher, is following the rules of the religion by being buried soon after her death Wednesday.

The funeral for the star, who succumbed to congestive heart failure at age 79, is taking place at Forest Lawn, Glendale, on Thursday, say reports. It will be strictly for family members, including her 10 grandchildren.

The cemetery is also where Taylor's friend, Michael Jackson, is buried.

It is expected that a public memorial for Taylor will take place at a later date.

Taylor had four children: Michael and Christopher Wilding (whose father was Taylor's second husband, actor Michael Wilding), Liza Todd (daughter of Taylor and third husband, the showman Mike Todd) and Maria Burton (adopted by Taylor and actor Richard Burton, husband Nos. five and six).
