The Gravestone of Mae Busch

Mae Busch’s ashes were interred in Chapel of the Pines Crematory in the mid ’70s. She died in 1946. In the years between, her ashes sat unclaimed in a cardboard box in the Motion Picture and Television Country Home and Hospital. Interestingly, she got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1960, 15 years before anyone thought to take her out of the box.

Fun fact about Mae: She banged her friend Mabel Normand’s fiancĂ© Mack Sennett, and then threw a vase at Mabel when she caught them.
