 Grave of Kathleen Mary Baillie

Zuurfontein Cemetery, grave number 2516, Plane Street, Kempton Park, between Isando Road and Kelvin Road, adjacent to a sports field. Location: From the front entrance, go straight forward about 200 meters. Go to the last block before the opposite fence. The grave is on the left hand side, about the 4th row from the front. The text reads "In loving memory of "Aunty" / Kathleen Mary Jemison neé Baillie / 1892 - 1976 / Trust in the Lord, Ps. 37:3". The word "neé" is sic. The gravestone carries the signature "West" on the bottom left hand corner; presumably this was the designer. Size: 4' wide and 3' high. The burial is registered in the book of the Cemetery as "Cathreen Marie Gemison" and is therefore to be found on the pages for "G", not "J". The book records the death as November 19, 1976. The name had been phoned through and probably the note-taker was Afrikaans-speaking, hence the "Marie".
