Expired Parking Meter Tombstone

This was such a fun tombstone to see. It is in the front row on the right as you enter Highland Cemetery. It's sad that the woman died on her birthday, but as the tombstone says, "Her humor lives on."

Really great! Easy to find. Take Okemah exit off I-40. Go north. Keep going straight on Woodie Guthrie. After going up big hill, cemetery is on right. Go through middle entrance that has big gate.

Expired Parking Meter Tombstone

Parking meter tombstone in Okemah, OK for my mom, Barbara Sue Manire, 1941-2005.

Mom always wanted a parking meter on her grave with the words "time expired." She died exactly on her 64th birthday, so my brother had special stickers made that read: "64 year time limit."
