Elizabeth Sunlin

My great-great grandmother Elizabeth Sunlin, née Heim (born on May 17, 1829 in Baden-Württemberg; died May 10, 1920 in Chicago). She was buried at Forest Home cemetery in Chicago.


She is in Section 48 in the north 10ft of Lot 366. Her burial date was May 14, 1920. She was 98 yrs 11 mo and 23 days.


She does not have a headstone, which seems to fit the pattern of interments with my family. Only her son Joseph (my great-grandfather) has been found to have a headstone. In many cases, original headstones made in marble do not last long; weathering from rain removes any details in the marble in a matter of decades.
