  • Burial Kent County, Michigan, USA
  • Memorial ID 53480603

According to the following letter Malinda is buried in Plainfield, although she doesn't have a tombstone next to her first husband John Shears. Her death record also shows her buried at Plainfield, Michigan, so I would assume she is buried here.
