She is buried in St. Alphonsus Catholic Cemetery in Lemont, Illinois.
Unfortunately, the portrait has been broken, but thanks to David Mather, there is a photo of her on her Find-a-Grave listing:
Interestingly, the Cook County Deaths Index that I found via Ancestry lists the correct date of birth and death for her, but lists St. Boniface Cemetery.
Looking at the 1910 census, she is found there, the daughter of William and Ida. Both of her parents have a listed age of 42, which I thought was interesting — apparently, she was a baby they had somewhat late in life.
I know some of the visitors to this blog might not celebrate Halloween, but it’s my favorite holiday (because I like the whole pumpkin-carving, ravens in my windows, spooky kinds of things for a month….). While I’m not a horror-movie, blood & gore, scary scary scary Halloween kind of girl, I do like that it’s a time to reflect on some of the things that might seem a little dark, like cemeteries.
Welcome to the Halloween edition of Taphophile Tragics on this blog! And welcome to my new (and hopefully, improved) blog-in-process. I did upgrade, so while it might not look very different, I do have a new domain name: http://marbletowns.com. Also, the Linky tool should work properly now (fingers crossed). I’m submitting a few of my favorite Halloween-y/spooky modded photos this week, and I’m very excited to see what everyone else has this week. Welcome!
