Tombstone Tuesday - A Tree in the Trees

This tree trunk monument is perfectly positioned under large evergreen trees. It is well over six feet tall. It certainly looks appropriate for its woodsy surroundings, complete with a little green moss. The gravestone memorializes two of the Bly sisters, who each lived an extremely long life. Curiously, neither of their life dates are on the stone.

Harriet Bly McCall
Age 95 Yrs
Orma Bly Mennie
Age 96 Yrs

Harriet Bly McCall lived 1877-1972 and her sister Orma Bly Mennie lived 1886-1983.  This gravestone is located in Aux Sable Cemetery, Kendall County, Illinois.
