Greenlawn Cemetery, Springfield, Missouri

I have to say "Thank you" once again to Terri Mindock for responding so kindly to my request on an message board for a snapshot of the markers of Sallie Alice Herring (Byers) and her daughter, Della Herring. All of the images in this post were taken by Terri.

Sallie and Della are buried in the Greenlawn Cemetery in Springfield, Missouri. The following picture is of the entrance sign to the cemetery.

The following marker is Sallie's.

The following are two pictures of Della's marker.
