Tombstone Tuesday

In My Genealogy, Painter on December 15, 2009 at 9:01 AM

Today’s advent calendar theme (Holiday Happenings…birthdays, anniversaries and the like) did not inspire me this morning I’m afraid.  However I do like this idea of Tombstone Tuesday also found on GeneaBloggers.

This is Annie Mary Painter’s headstone.  She is my great-grandmother.  Born Annie Mary (or Marie) Turnbough in Monroe County, Missouri 23 July 1873 she married James William “Will” Painter 22 Jan 1891 in Florida, Monroe County, Missouri.  She had five children.  In the midst of her childbearing the family moved from Missouri to Sasaktachewan, Canada–near Shellbrook–and homesteaded.  After her husband died she headed west, ending up finally in Vancouver, British Columbia where she died 30 June 1940.  She is buried at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Burnaby, British Columbia.
