If you were ever a fan of Doris Day, you will never have the chance to pay your last respects.

As Page Six reports, the famed Hollywood actress will not be having a funeral, a memorial service, or even a grave marker. And as it turns out, it was Day’s decision for things to be the way they are. Her manager Bob Bashara states that it was not in her wishes to have either, because she simply just did not like death.

Apparently, she had a hard time dealing with the concept. In an interview with People magazine, Bashara recalls one of the many times he tried to discuss the subject with her.

“I’d say we need to provide for her dogs [after she died], and she’d say, ‘I don’t want to think about it’ and she said, ‘Well, you just take care of them.’ She had several when her will was written, and she wanted to be sure they were taken care of. She didn’t like to talk about the dogs dying.”

Day died on Monday at the age of 97-years-old. She is most famous for her role in Pillow Talk and Calamity Jane.
