A few snapshots from my Memorial Day visit to St. Mary’s Cemetery, about seven miles south of Waseca, Minnesota.
St. Mary’s is a Catholic cemetery, so you’ll see a lot of crucifixes.
Most of the people buried here are of Irish descent.
The oaks at St. Mary’s are stunning.
My grandpa and grandma are buried in the very southwest corner. Grandpa farmed all his life, so it’s fitting that he’s right next to the field. (Grandpa, being Polish, is an exception to the mostly Irish buried here. But Grandma was Irish!).
