The flame-haired Irish-American actress Maureen O'Hara was buried at Arlington National Cemetery on Monday (November 9), next to her husband U.S. Air Force Brigadier General Charles Blair who was buried there in 1978.

Known for playing feisty women in classics like "How Green Was My Valley" and "Miracle on 34th Street" as well as her on-screen chemistry with John Wayne, O'Hara died last month of natural causes at the age of 95 at her home in Boise, Idaho.

O'Hara was one of Hollywood's top leading ladies of the 1940s and 1950s and was a favorite of fabled director John Ford. She starred in more than 50 films and thrived in various genres: dramas, swashbuckling adventures, Westerns, comedies and family films.

O'Hara's coffin was carried by uniformed servicemen and the graveside service was accompanied by a traditional bagpipe band.

O'Hara was born in 1920 near Dublin as Maureen Fitzsimons.

She played feisty women in swashbucklers such as "The Black Swan" in 1942, "Sinbad the Sailor" in 1947 and "At Sword's Point" in 1952. She was happy to play physical roles and enjoyed doing her own stunts because "it was like an extension of the girl bashing up the boys when I was young."

O'Hara began to take maternal roles in the 1960s, like "The Parent Trap" in 1961 with Brian Keith and Hayley Mills.

She was married three times. Her third husband was aviator Blair, whom she married in 1968. When Blair was killed in a plane crash in 1978, she took his post as head of a Caribbean commuter airline.
