FRED ASTAIRE AND GINGER ROGERS

CHERISHING OUR VALLEY         2013

My son Brendan and I drove to Chatsworth on Veterans' Day to visit his uncle's grave. While we were there we walked to the entrance area of Oakwood Cemetery to see the final resting places of two very famous American performers. 


Ginger Rogers 
1911 to 1995
 An amazing performer, Ginger Rogers was an actress, singer and wonderful dancer. She starred on the stage, in films, radio and television. She was one of the greatest stars of the 20th century. Ginger Rogers frequently worked with the great dancer Fred Astaire.

Fred Astaire 
1899 – 1987

A mega-star performer, Fred Astaire was an actor, musician, singer, stage actor, and above all one of the greatest dancers in American history. He was the dance partner of Ginger Rogers in many films.

 "The history of dance on film begins with Astaire". 
Gene Kelly

I didn't know Fred & Ginger were buried so close to where I was raised! Had I known, I'd hae made the pilgrimage myself as they are two of my favorite screen stars. Forest Lawn is the cemetery associated with Hollywood stars. How interesting to hear these two are not there but in Oakwood? I wonder what the back story on that is?

Oakwood is a quiet private feeling place. Just personal preferences I think. Jerry
