Maud Mary Bathgate Logan Adams was so loved by her husband that considerable stone working skills were used to carve her headstone. The inscription is disappearing on the semi-hard 100 year old stone. Like many other makers in the cemetery, it is being abused by city owned lawnmowers piloted by teenage boys. The design is unique and the sentiment of a loving husband has been on display for generations of descendants and visitors to the cemetery.
