Parking Meter Headstone

Still there, along with its ability to make you smile and appreciate the lady and her children. While you're there, check the "Bench Headstone" just a few spots to the right.

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.
