MARIE E.
DEC. 27, 1912 - MAY 19, 1999

Marie Pilfold was my Sunday School teacher when I was a young girl, about seven years old. Everyone knew Harold as "Shorty" and he ran the service station in Greenwood, Nebraska when I was a kid. I was wandering around Rosehill Cemetery one Sunday morning, walking up and down the rows of tombstones and came across Shorty and Marie's burial place.
