  • Description

    Private funeral services for society hostess Elsa Maxwell were held in New York City today (12 November).

    Miss Maxwell...famed as a party giver for social figures in the United States and Europe...was buried in Ferncliff Cemetery in suburban Ardsley.

    She died 1 November at the age of 80. Her lawyer, Sol Rosenblatt said he delayed the funeral until today while he searched for a will her friends said she had left. The will reportedly asked that she be cremated and her ashes scattered over the Adriatic Sea.

    Rosenblatt said he could not find that she had legally expressed such a wish and decided to complete the funeral arrangements. He said her estate is estimated at less than 10-thousand dollars.
