Cedarburg Anna Boerner with epitaph

She is buried in Cedarburg Cemetery in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. Anna Vosteen Boerner, born 11/18/1841; died 6/17/1922. I found her in the 1900 and 1920 censuses, where she is listed as a widow, with several children: Ida, Albert and Flora.

One of her relatives posted this neat photo and there is also a family tree for her on Ancestry that has several other images.  The family tree shows that she was married at age 17 to Christoph Boerner.

I tried a bit of manipulation to see if I could make this part easier to read:
Cedarburg Anna Boerner epitaph
“In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” John 14:2 (King James version). She loved the ___________ and the flowers.
