Lucille Desiree Ball Gravesite
There seems to be alot going on right now about a 100 years of Lucy. She was born August 6, 1911 in Jamestown, New York. She died April 26, 1989. Now last year we were out on a trip to Jamestown and stopped to to see her grave site - you know me and graveyards. Lucy was originally interred in Forest Lawn Cemetery, Hollywood Hills in the Court of Remembrance.
but she was uninterred and transferred to Lucy's hometown of Jamestown to Lakeview Cemetery, 907 Lakeview ave, Jamestown New York 14701, She is in Section "Highland".
It took a little riding around to find the grave as it is a large cemetery and her gravesite does not have any large monument at it. The give away is the flowers and people around it.
She shares a stone with the rest of her family.
I have written before about how graves of writers will have stones and pennies etc placed on the monument. Beyond flowers there was not any other objects placed there the day we were there. It could be the cemetery crew picks up everything everyday. Jamestown has several places celebrating Lucille Ball.
