more Robert Graves from wiki--the end--

Death

Grave of Robert Graves
During the early 1970s Graves began to suffer from increasingly severe memory loss and by his 80th birthday, in 1975, he had come to the end of his working life. By this time he had published more than 140 works. He survived for ten more years, in an increasingly dependent condition, until he died from heart failure on 7 December 1985 at 90. He was buried the next morning in the small churchyard on a hill at DeiĆ , at the site of a shrine that had once been sacred to The White Goddess of Pelion.[7] His second wife, Beryl Graves, died on 27 October 2003 and was buried with him.[36]
