A heartbroken Catherine Zeta-Jones bid farewell to her beloved grandmother at her funeral service today.
Dressed all in black the actress paid her respects to her 91-year-old namesake relative at the service in Swansea.
Catherine was last week left devastated by news that 91-year-old Zeta - who the Oscar-winning Hollywood actress is named after and who will be cremated - had passed away.
The 38-year-old was particularly fond of widow Zeta and made several trips from her home in Bermuda each year to visit her modest 100,000 home in Ravenhill, Swansea.
She flew back in February this year to personally deliver a bouquet of flowers on her birthday.
On a number of occasions she also jetted widow Mrs Jones out to join her at the luxurious hideout she shares with her 62-year-old husband Michael Douglas, who didn't attend today's service, and their two children, Dylan, eight, and Carys, five.
Mrs Jones had been ill for several days and was staying at daughter Valerie's house near to her home when she passed away in her sleep.
Local residents said it was simply old age that caused her death and that she was 'a lovely woman' who was popular with many people in the area.
Mrs Jones - who is the mother of Catherine's businessman father - is said to be originally named after a famous merchant ship, The Zeta, which carried copper from South America to Swansea docks.
