Anne Heish will be laid to rest alongside some of the biggest names in show business at the Hollywood Cemetery in Los Angeles. The star’s body was cremated on August 18, and her remains will be buried at the famous site, according to the death certificate obtained by “E! News”.
Judy Garland, Mel Blanc, Mickey Rooney, Marion Davis and Cecil B. DeMille are just some of the big names who are also buried there.
Earlier this month, the 53-year-old actress crashed her Mini Cooper into a house in Los Angeles, which then burst into flames.
Her rep told Page Six that she suffered a severe anoxic brain injury that required her to be on life support and severe burns that required surgery. The actress fell into a coma and did not regain consciousness.
Investigators were reportedly able to determine that she was under the influence of cocaine at the time of the crash.
A week later, on August 12, the star was pronounced clinically dead, but remains on life support so that recipients can be found for organs.
That same day, Heish’s representative released a statement about her passing.
“Today we lost a bright light, a kind and most joyful soul, a loving mother and a faithful friend.” the statement read.
“Anne will be greatly missed, but she lives on through her wonderful sons, her iconic work and her passionate advocacy. Her courage in always standing up for her truth, spreading her message of love and acceptance, will continue to have a lasting impact.”
The actress, who rose to fame with Ellen DeGeneres in the 1990s, died of smoke inhalation, according to the Los Angeles County coroner. A fractured sternum has also been cited as a contributing factor in her death.
