perelachaiseparisMaria Callas died in Paris on 16 September 1977. The funeral service took place four days later on 20 September, after which her body was cremated. In the spring of 1979, her ashes were scattered over the Aegean Sea.
A plane provided by the French government was used to fly the ashes of Miss Callas to Athens. Her ashes were handed over to her family after an attempt had been made to steal them from the columbarium in Père Lachaise. They were scattered over the Aegean Sea as she requested in her will which stated that she wanted to be "lost in the sea".
