Although Bonnie and Clyde wanted to be buried together, Bonnie Parker's family would have nothing to do with it.

Funeral services were held separately for Bonnie Parker at McKamy-Campbell Funeral Home on May 26, 1934. It was a Saturday, and over 20,000 people attended the funeral. The funeral director's son recalls cards being sent by Pretty Boy Floyd and John Dillinger.

Although originally buried in Fishtrap Cemetery, Bonnie Parker was moved to Crown Hill Memorial Park in 1945. She was 23 years old.

Her epitaph reads:
"As the flowers are all made sweeter by the sunshine and the dew, so this old world is made brighter by the lives of folks like you."
