In the shade of a large tree, this single gravesite is marked by a white cross and a grey granite stone. You can find it three rows from the back and two rows over from the woods. Father Judge recruited the Sisters of St. Ann to work at the new St. Mary's Hospital in 1897. They were remembered for their hard work and care for Dawson City's elders. Many of the sisters died from illnesses contracted on the job, while Sister Mary Gedeon died in the fire that destroyed the hospital in 1950.
