Grandfather Dominick Antonio Vitale 

Grave of grandfather

Christina Anne Bowser Vitale grandmother's grave compliments of Fran Kenney.

A speech by Fran regarding my grandmother.

Christina A. Vitale, born December 8, 1892, died August 24, 1925, was the grandmother of Elizabeth Vitale, who now lives in California.  Because of the renovation, I was able to locate Christina’s grave and send pictures to Elizabeth.

 

Elizabeth wrote me in emails,  “I heard about the restoration and how many hospitals closed. It is amazing she is in one (which) was still open and the cemetery restored.”

“How lucky is this to have 26 hospitals, 20 close, 6 remain and my grandmother has a tombstone from renovation. Thank everyone for me.”

Though there are unanswered questions about her grandmother’s life, her time in our facility, and why she died at such a young age, 33 years old, her grandmother has been honored like all of these other 900+ graves.  I was proud to place flowers on Christina’s grave, and to tell her they were from her granddaughter, Elizabeth.
