“Budded here on earth to blossom in ....” I can’t make out the last word. This photo is another that my sister sent me while she was in NC a couple weeks ago. #gravestoneaddiction #graveyard_life #grave_affair #grave_gallery #graveyard_shots #tv_churchandgraves #graveyard_fanatics #aj_graveyards #click_gravestone #etoe_2

So I haven’t got to explore much lately and I’ve been busy starting a new career and what not 😁 but my super cool sister went to NC and took this for me. My family feeds my #gravestoneaddiction

This is a first for me. I’d never seen a “Mexican war” vet. This is referring to the conflict prior to the Civil war between the U.S. & Mexico. #gravestoneaddiction #graveyard_fanatics #graveyard_freaks #graveyard_dead #aj_graveyards #click_gravestone #grave_gallery #grave_affair #graveyard_lovers #graveyard_life #tv_churchandgraves #war #history #cemetery_nation #cemetery_shots #cemeteryphotography

“Was far too sweet to linger long” I wonder if these words carried this dear family through many tough days...

Sarah McKoy Greenwood was the first woman elected to a Douglas County public office and the first woman to a superior court clerkship in Georgia, at a time when women weren’t even allowed in the courthouse.

When her father, Thad McKoy, Douglas County Clerk of Superior Court, died of a heart attack in 1940, she was appointed to take over his term of office. She later ran and won two additional four-year terms on her own, amid tough competition. After she married, she chose not to run again. “Her more than eight years in office are remembered by old timers as highly successful and marked by her fine performance of duties,” said Fannie Mae Davis in an Oct. 15, 1970 Douglas County Sentinel newspaper story.

Greenwood, 94, of Douglasville, died Wednesday after complications from a broken back due to a Christmas Eve fall and kidney failure. “I met Sarah and her husband, Bill, when I worked at Douglas Federal Bank (now BB&T),” said Pat Owen-Parris, a long-time friend whom Greenwood called her “adopted daughter.” “When Bill died in 1989, I promised him that I would take care of Sarah because she was alone. She became part of my family. We involved her in everything we did,” she said. “She was a treasure to our family and we truly loved her as if she were our own mother,” Owen-Parris said.

Greenwood graduated from the old Douglas County High School and was valedictorian of her class. She attended the Henry Grady School of Journalism at the University of Georgia. She was a member of the Theta Sigma Phi honorary sorority for women in journalism, which had among its members Lady Bird Johnson.

Greenwood helped obtain a charter for the local chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star where she served as its first Worthy Matron and Worthy Patron. She also held district and state Eastern Star offices.

She was recognized in 2002 with the Douglas County Pathway of Service award at the courthouse for her groundbreaking service to the county.

She was a member of the Douglasville First United Church where she taught Sunday School.

She had no immediate family survivors. #gravestoneaddiction #history #firstfemale #coolhistory

I was impressed by the detail of “Jesus” or at least this artist depiction. #gravestoneaddiction

Simple cross. You can just see the outline of rocks surrounding the grave. No name, lost in time known only by the ones who experienced this loss. #gravestoneaddiction #aj_graveyards #aj_cemeteries #etoe_2 #kings_gothic #momentomori #taphophiles_only
