Abendschone Chapter, NSDAR Pays Tribute

On May 21, Abendschone Chapter, NSDAR paid tribute at the Eureka Springs Cemetery to mark the graves of interred past chapter members. Patriotic American decorations and flags (with NSDAR logos) were placed next to the graves of the chapter’s founding leaders. There are 34 known members’ graves in Eureka Springs Cemetery. Organizing members honored were Ruth Fuller Cross; Ruth’s mother, May Obenshain Fuller; Dorothy Fuller Mathews; and Beaulah Pitts McBee (May’s niece.) The gravesite of Organizing Regent Fanny Henderson Russ also was honored. GPS coordinates are recorded for each member’s gravesite so that the chapter can honor them at future events. This year the flags remained at the gravesites through Memorial Day.
