The reason behind Michael Landon’s ex-wife’s decision to skip his funeral

Michael Landon achieved on-screen legend status as a result of his roles as Cartwright in Bonanza and Charles Ingalls in Little House on the Prairie.

Over 500 people attended his burial after he passed away from cancer in 1991, including a former US president.

To the evident astonishment of many, Landon’s second wife, Lynn Noe, decided not to attend the burial.

Why then did she decide to remain at home?

Few performers have ever achieved the kind of fame that Michael Landon did. He was born on October 31st, 1936, and when he was a teenager, he moved to Hollywood to pursue an acting career. As fate would have it, he would never be the same after a fortunate encounter at the gas station where he worked.
