Kate’s bouquet

The monument at the grave of Kate L. Evans has a beautiful symmetry—and a beautiful bouquet of flowers that never wilt.



KATE L.
wife of
W. S. EVANS,
died
MAY 17, 1880,
AGED
42 yrs. 6 mos. & 9 ds.

Most likely Kate’s own husband, the local tombstone manufacturer, is responsible for the monument to his wife.
