Screen siren Elizabeth Taylor was laid to rest in a private funeral attended by four dozen relatives and close friends Thursday, a day after she succumbed to congestive heart failure at age 79.

She was buried at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale outside L.A., where her longtime friend Michael Jackson is.
 
Glendale police spokesman Tom Lorenz told reporters Taylor was being interred in the Great Mausoleum, but not next to Jackson, who died in 2009 at age 50 (Taylor attended Jackson's private service).
 
Taylor is survived by four children, 10 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
 
A public service is expected to be held at a later date.
 
On Friday, Broadway will dim its lights in honor of Taylor.
 
Clark Gable, Jean Harlow and Walt Disney also are buried at Forest Lawn.
