I’ve heard of creative ways to pinch pennies, save money, even raise money in this economy, there are all kinds of ideas out there to come up with some extra money. How about moving your deceased husband’s grave? Just move ‘em if it will get you some extra money to pay the mortgage.

Elsie Poncher, a widowed California woman listed an auction on Ebay for the crypt directly above Marilyn Monroe, at the Westwood Village Memorial Park. Currently her deceased husband rests there facing down, looking down at Marilyn Monroe. The plot was acquired by her late husband Richard Poncher in 1954. Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio divorced in 1954 and Joe had sold the plot to Richard that year. Many former celebrities are buried in Westwood Village Memorial Park, including the late Farrah Fawcett, and even Dean Martin. Hugh Hefner will be buried beside Marilyn, he purchased the plot in 1992 for an undisclosed amount.

Bidding started at $500,000 and closed at $2.5 million dollars on Sunday. That’s a pretty penny for playing the grave switch-a-roo. However, Richard Poncher died knowing he was going to rest in peace above Marilyn Monroe and now he is going to be moved.
