It is not known particularly where Adelheid is buried (although it is certain the she was buried in Holy Cross/Resurrection). This is because church and cemetery records from approximately 1902-1914 were destroyed at some point. Family stories tell us that Johann and Adelheid are buried alongside their granddaughter Helen Diebold (1906-1909) in Section 1, Block 2. Helen has a stone, but there are no others visible in the area, making it likely that they are buried there but unmarked.

Further evidence is suggested by my grandmother (Mary Diebold), who once approached the groundskeeper in an effort to find out where they were buried. She says that he pulled out an old and faded book with handwritten burials entered on the pages. Though the ink was faded, she could see, up-side-down, while he searched right-side-up, the name Diebolt and the names of her great-grandparents. He didn't see it, "the idiot!" (as she would say) and told her they were not shown in the records.
