Delia Oliver's graveyard tombstone washed up on Ocean Beach in San Francisco, CA on June 3, 2012. The Pacific Ocean tossed the 122 year old granite marker upon the beach as if it were a pebble.

Mrs. Oliver was originally interred in Laurel Hill Cemetery in San Francisco. It is not clear whether her body remains in her intended grave-site upon Laurel Hill or was transferred to a cemetery in Colma and interred in a mass grave.
