Mrs. Elizabeth Davis

Mrs. Elizabeth Davis passed away at a hospital in Lucas County, Ohio on August 8, 1914. According to her brief obituary which appeared in the August 11, 1914 issue of the Sandusky Register, she was the wife of Thomas W. Davis. Mr. Davis was a resident of the Ohio Soldiers' and Sailors' Home in Sandusky, now known as the Ohio Veterans Home.

The heart shaped tombstone which honors the memory of Mrs. Elizabeth Davis at Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery, speaks even today of how much she was loved.

I don't believe I've ever seen a heart-shaped grave marker. It's so very sweet and speaks volumes of the love and esteem held for Mrs. Davis.

Thanks for stopping by Nancy! I am so often amazed at the expressions of love and respect that I run into at cemeteries!
