From a Reuters story about Sir Peter Ustinov's funeral today in Switzerland:

Many celebrities choose to live in Switzerland where they enjoy relative privacy. The late actress Audrey Hepburn and Richard Burton are buried in their adopted wine-growing villages along Lake Geneva…

Frankly, I'm not sure the word "late" was entirely necessary in that second sentence. I generally associate "buried" with "dead": maybe it's just a quirk of mine?
