The Final Resting Place of Jolia Gabor.
29th.September 1896 - 1st.April 1997.
Located in section B row 8.
Jolie Gabor was born Janka Tilleman in Budapest, Austro-Hungarian Empire. She is best known as "Mama Jolie", the mother of Magda Gabor, Zsa Zsa Gabor, and Eva Gabor, who were famous for their beauty and many marriages.
Jolie officially claimed to have been born in 1900, and gave that year to the U.S. Social Security Administration, but her first child, Magda, was born in 1914.
After Jolie's death, gossip/society columnist Cindy Adams (who had written a book about Jolie) wrote that Jolie had been 102 at the time of her death. Thus the year 1894 came into play. According to researcher Piet Hein Honig, Jolie's Budapest birth certificate tells that she was actually born in
1896. Jolie's only grandchild is Zsa Zsa's daughter, Francesca Hilton.
Jolie was married three times: Vilmos Gabor, Hungarian soldier, father of her three daughters (1914-1939), Peter Howard Christman (1947-1948), Count Edmund "Odon" de Szigethy (1957-1989, his death)
