Residents with military ties located throughout cemetery

February 13, 2014

Photo by Becky Polaski Pictured is the grave of Dr. Augustine C. Luhr and his wife Gertrude, who lost two sons during World War II. The grave of their son Jordan, who died in a training accident in Georgia in 1942, can be seen in the background.

Military markers dot the landscape throughout the St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery. One is located adjacent to each veteran's grave indicating the conflict in which they served. 
These men and women served in the armed forces throughout the country's history, and Beimel shared a few of their stories during a tour of the cemetery earlier this year.
