The mother and daughter were honored at a ceremony inside the Hall of Liberty at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles that was organized by Reynolds' son Todd Fisher.
There was also a costume from "Singin' in the Rain," the classic 1952 film in which Reynolds portrayed Kathy Selden.
Speaking to thousands of fans who attended the event, which was also live-streamed, Todd Fisher reflected on conversations with his mother right after his sister passed away.
"When Carrie died, my mother decided to change her plans a bit," he began. "My mother always said to me, 'I never want to go to my daughter's funeral service. I would like to be buried with Carrie.'"
"I didn’t know she was going to leave us that very next day, and when she looked at me to ask permission to leave, she said she wanted to be with Carrie, and she closed her eyes and went to sleep. It was a beautiful exit," Todd Fisher added.
The daughter and mother actresses were laid to rest Jan. 6 at Forest Lawn Memorial Park. Reynolds was buried with some of her daughters ashes.
