Tombstone Tuesday – Nella M. Lowney

For today’s Tombstone Tuesday post, I would like to share the picture of the tombstone of Nella Mae (McCormack) Lowney. Nell is buried in the Mount Tamalpais Cemetery located in San Rafael, California. I should mention that she is one of the many great granddaughters of Michael and Catherine McCormack. Her parents were Henry Peacock McCormack and Ethel Davis. Upon her passing, she left her husband, Chester and three fine sons.

Nella is someone who I never had the chance to meet. From what I have seen of her, she had a lovely smile and was a wonderful person to be around. She passed away before I made contact with the rest of her family. Just an interesting note about the musical symbols in the middle of the marker, Our Love Is Here To Stay is a jazz standard written by George and Ira Gershwin. Very special.

Thanks for stopping by!
