The Glendale News reports today that the Hepburn family have been brought into the lawsuit against Grand View Cemetery. The Hepburn's were the former owners of Grand View before the late Marsha Lee Howard bought it in the early 1990s. The Hepburn's were the owners from 1929-1990.
In fact, it was the Hepburn's who owned the cemetery when Edna Purviance's sister Myrtle interred Edna at Grand View in February 1958 (nearly a full month after Edna's funeral at Forest Lawn). Edna's records does show the name of one of the Hepburn family members during the transfer from Forest Lawn to Grand View.
The next 'status conference' on this case is scheduled for June 4th, 2007. Lisa Burks does write behind the scenes stories on Grand View, as well. See links to right under GRAND VIEW.
