The star was laid to rest in a very private ceremony at the Oaklawn Cemetery in Fairfield, CT on the morning of Jan. 29. There were about 50 people total in attendance, including Bernadette Peters, who starred alongside Moore in the 1990 TV movie, The Last Best Year.

Aside from the “small” and “quiet” proceedings of her relatives and closest friends, her family also reportedly made a heart-wrenchingly sweet final gesture–spending upwards of $200,000 for an angel statue that will go over her gravesite.
