John and Eva McCormick

Eva McCormick (1884-1919) and John J. McCormick (1878-1961) are buried at Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery. Mrs. McCormick was only 33 years old at the time of her death. Her husband John lived in Sandusky until his death in 1961.

Mrs. Eva McCormick died on January 28, 1919. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Bauman. Her funeral was held at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Sandusky. Mr. John J. McCormick passed away on May 6, 1961. His funeral was held at Holy Angels Catholic Church.

Mr. and Mrs. McCormick's tombstone was created by Conrad Keim. Sculpted onto the stone is a person who appears to be praying the rosary.( Mr. Keim's signature, C. Keim, is visible at the base of the tombstone.)The strong faith of John and Eva McCormick is still apparent today to visitors to Oakland Cemetery, as all who walk by their grave marker can view a sculpted figure in prayer.
