Tombstone Tuesday: Clara Strukoff

Two days ago on Sunday, I posted Clara's obituary. Today, I’m following up that post with a scanned image of her gravemarker. Clara is interred in the U.S.C.C. Doukhobor Cemetery in Grand Forks, British Columbia.

  1. Her epitaph is especially nice, and I'm sure she's blooming in heaven now. So sad she had a rather short life really. We also have a city here named Grand Forks and East Grand Forks.

    1. Thank you, Karen, for commenting. I too like the epitaph. I find it's a gentle epitaph for a gentle young woman.

  2. For an amatuer genealogist, you have done pretty good being able to trace your roots back to the 1600s is really a challenge. Congratulations.

    1. Thank you! It's due to all those French-Canadian records; for the most part, they're easy to find :-)
