Laid to rest in her nightgown behind the wheel of her light-blue 1964 Ferrari 250GT. The heiress, widow of Texas oil millionaire, Ike West, was a wealthy 37 year old Beverly Hills socialite, and left most of her $3 million estate to her brother, provided he made sure she was buried in her favorite lace nightgown and inside her Ferrari, with the seat slanted comfortably. The Ferrari was surrounded with concrete so no one would be tempted to dig it up and drive away.
