TOMBSTONE OF MARY L. HOLL - Aulenbach's Cemetery, Mount Penn, Berks County, PA

I liked this tombstone when I saw it because the small epitaph at the bottom, "Beautiful Memories," sums up this woman's life quite nicely. Also notice that it says Aunt at the top. Does this mean that Mary did not have children? Perhaps her nieces and nephews are the ones who had the tombstone made and placed? Or, maybe she was well known where she lived and everyone referred to her as "Aunt?" A nice genealogical mystery for someone to solve. Overall, a very nice tombstone with beautiful script.
