grave post - Roote

the reverse side of Ruth Phyllis Roote's headstone 
at the Saugeen Village Cemetery, Saugeen First Nations


  1. I enjoy looking round old graveyards too, although it can make me quite sad, especially seeing graves of young people. Ruth seems to have lived to a reasonable age, I hope she had a happy life. Anabel's Travel Blog

    1. I couldn't find any information on her, but Roote seems to be a common name among the Saugeen First Nation.

  2. A beautiful gravestone. I find cemeteries such peaceful places and full of history. My mother-in-law is buried at Arlington along with several other friends, so we go there quite often throughout the year. It is a place of great reflection.

  3. The reverse side is unique and tells a symbolic story with its image.
