Seeing Stars: Final Resting Places of the Stars

24754 Trabuco Road,
Lake Forest, CA. / (949) 837-1331

There is only one well-known person buried at this small Orange County cemetery, but she is a figure whose tragic death made the headlines: Nicole Simpson (1959-1994), wife of O.J. Simpson, and murder victim in the infamous case that dominated the news throughout the mid 90's.

And her grave is fairly easy to find.

Once you pull through the main gates of the park, turn right (west) and follow the road a short distance until it dead-ends at a u-turn point. Make a u-turn and park just west of the brick building which is on the south side of the road.

Nicole's grave is located just behind (south of) that brick building. Just walk around the building and look for two small flower pots on her grave, about four rows back (north) from the building.

Getting there: Ascension is a Catholic cemetery located in Orange County, about 15 miles southeast of Disneyland, near the "El Toro Y," and north of the Laguna Hills Mall. Take the 5 or 405 Freeway south to the Lake Forest Drive exit. Go northeast on Lake Forest Drive (about 2 miles) to Trabuco Road. Turn left (northwest) on Trabuco, go a half mile northwest and the cemetery will be on your left (southwest) side.
