***Her obit says she is buried in this cemetery, however, From Contributor Paul Sutton Kamalsky (#46798303)
re: my photo request:
"I looked again for her one day some time ago and could not find her. The Historical Society has no record of her in their West Avenue cemetery records."
I will try to sort out if she is buried in this cemetery or if not, where she is actually buried and move her memorial.
