Gravestone with a Modern Curse

Cursed. Ancient Cemetery in Yarmouth. Apparently she was feeding all the stray cats and wild small animals in her neighborhood, much to the annoyance of her neighbors. Here is her payback!

[Andrea, 09/03/2012]

Mary Dolencie (1906-1985) apparently authorized this posthumous whammy on her "whaling port" detractors.
