From November 24, 1960:

Clark Gable’s body has been entombed beside the remains of actress Carole Lombard, the third of his five wives.

Meanwhile the film star’s will was filed for probate Wednesday in Los Angeles. It describes his estate only as “in excess of $10,000.”

All goes to his widow, the former Kay Williams Spreckels, except that Gable’s first wife, drama coach Josephine Dillon, now 75, receives title to the North Hollywood home where she lives. 

Only the widow and a few close friends and associates were present at a brief Episcopal committal service Wednesday in a mausoleum at Forest Lawn Memorial park. Air Force Chaplain Johnson E. West officiated.

The film star, 59, died a week ago of a heart attack. his funeral was last Saturday. Entombment was delayed because a doctor feared that the widow might be overtaxed if funeral and entombment followed each other. She expects Gable’s first child in March and has a heart condition herself.

Gable expressed a wish to be placed beside Miss Lombard, killed in a World War II plane crash in Nevada. An adjoining crypt is reserved for his widow.


Not really adjoining…Kay was placed down a row and over in the same wall.
