Tombstone Tuesday ~ Nelle Eickelberg

Nelle and John Quick
To go along with my post on Nelle Eickelberg yesterday, I thought I would post her gravestone today. 

Nelle is buried in Denver's Fairmount Cemetery next to her second husband (and my great-grandfather) John Quick rather than with her third (and final) husband Richard Heflin. She was not able to be buried with her last husband as he was buried in Fairmount's Garden of Honor which is reserved for veterans. 

An interesting note is that John's brother Edwin is also buried here although there is no stone noting that.  I found this out the last time I visited and stopped in the office for a map and to ask where to find this plot.  The nice lady there not only looked up the location but offered the information of everyone buried there.  I hadn't known that previously.  It always pays to chat with people.
