*The parents of Mrs. Pundt, their last child of six beloved children, named her Grace EVALENA, after her Mother. Aunt Grace was pleased and proud to carry her name. Sadly, the precious name was misspelled on her Birth Certificate, and Aunt Grace actually wanted GRACE EVALENA to be shown on her headstone..…(Information provided by a very close loving and loved niece, Nancy.)
