The ashes of Gabor, who starred in “Moulin Rouge” and “Lili,” and might have been more well known for her multiple marriages, were interred in the Fiumei Street graveyard in Budapest, Hungary Today reported.

Gabor died on Dec. 18, 2016, at the age of 99, according to The New York Times.

Gabor’s ninth and final husband, Frederic von Anhalt, accompanied the actress’ ashes to her final resting place, the BBC reported,

Von Anhalt said Gabor had expressed in her will that she wanted to return to Hungary after her death, the news organization said.

The ceremony was attended by several famous Hungarian actors, writers and poets, according to Reuters. A band played and the actress’ favorite yellow roses were on display.

Von Anhalt, who married Gabor in 1986, told Reuters that he wanted Gabor’s ceremony to be “a celebration of life, not a funeral.”

“She was first class, she had her own seat and she had her passport, everything there. It was her last trip, she always used to go first class, she had her champagne, caviar,” von Anhalt told Reuters. “And then we arrived in Budapest … That’s what she wanted and that’s what she had in her last will. She definitely wanted to be in Budapest because her father is buried here too.”

The actress was born Sari Gabor in Budapest in February 1917. She was the second of three daughters of Vilmos and Jolie Gabor, the Times reported. She appeared in dozens of films but was more famous for her glamorous lifestyle and husbands, who included British actor George Sanders and hotel magnate Conrad Hilton, according to the BBC.

Gabor’s career began in 1936 when she was named Miss Hungary, the Times reported. Her sister, Magda Gabor, acted on radio and also helped her mother operate a chain of jewelry boutiques, the newspaper reported. She died in 1997. Her other sister, Eva Gabor, who was best known for her role on the 1960s television comedy “Green Acres,” died in 1995.
