The Sad Graves - Tombstone Tuesday
Winona Elva (or Elva W.) Mendenhall Covert Gerner was wife to two different husbands. She remarried after the death of her first husband, Everett R. Covert, and died before her second husband, Alfonzo Gerner. I suppose it would be a hard choice to know with which husband to be buried. Maybe she and Alfonzo discussed it and they both agreed about her burial location.
Still, I think it's sad to see Alfonzo's grave marker, standing alone, identifying him as the husband of Elva W. Covert with her buried beside her first husband.
