grave post - Erlme


I stopped off to wander through the Clifford Cemetery, but the mosquitos at dusk made it a short visit.

The name and current date on this stone as well as the bear and rooster stone made me pause. 





FISHER, Erlme Anne – passed away quietly at Listowel Memorial Hospital on Saturday April 19, 2014 at the age of 78. Erlme was a member of Atwood Presbyterian Church and the Women’s Missionary Society. 

The Alex Dixon Stewart listed on the stone was her brother who died in infancy. Today would have been her 79th birthday.

It would seem she also had a truly unique name. According to the only baby name website that recognized Erlme, there is one other person, in Michigan, who currently has this name.
