Memorial pays tribute to those with lost gravestones
Wednesday, October 31, 2012
The “Gone But Not Forgotten Memorial” dedicated Tuesday at the old City Cemetery, 1000 E. McCarty St., is the culmination of a sister’s love, a son’s promise, a family’s support and a community’s commitment.
Bertha Webb-Brown lost her younger sister just before Nora turned 10 in 1923. A devoted sister, Bertha always remembered Nora and passed on that tradition to her son, Glover Brown.
Although Nora Webb’s name is the first listed on the memorial, city staff hope to soon hear from other families with loved ones interred at the aging cemetery but whose headstones may be gone due to weather or vandalism.
