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 fiancé Mack Sennett, and then threw a vase at Mabel when she caught them.
