carry a secret to (one's)/the grave

To keep (not reveal) a secret for the duration of one's life. I can't believe that grandma carried such a huge family secret to her grave! If Uncle Joe hadn't blurted it out, we'd never have known about it! Oh, Emily is a loyal friend—she would definitely carry a secret to the grave.
