Sarah Ferguson's mother Susan Barrantes was buried on her ranch in the Argentine pampas Tuesday, next to the polo-playing husband for whom she left high society and her two daughters.

Sarah, the Duchess of York, and her sister Jane were present at the private ceremony and watched their mother buried under the shadow of a barrel-trunked ombu tree next to her second husband, Hector Barrantes, who died of cancer in 1990.

Mrs. Barrantes, 61, was killed instantly when her green Rover hatchback collided with a catering van driven by a local friend when she apparently was driving back to her ranch with a 25-year-old nephew after a trip to a nearby town to buy groceries on Saturday night.
