Mary Jo Roggatz, president of Mumford-Moon, American Legion Auxiliary, Correctionville Unit #79, has made it her responsibility since 2003 to decorate all 57 Civil War veterans’ graves in the Correctionville Cemetery. She purchases all the flags and flowers at her own expense and each Memorial Day weekend she can be found in the oldest part of the cemetery, making the view much brighter.  The flowers stay for the remainder of the year while the flags are removed Memorial Day evening.


It's now 2010 and Mary Jo is still adding colorful flowers and flags to the graves of 58 Civil War veterans.  Makes for such a beautiful background when we hold services on the north side of the cemetery.  Thank You, Mary Jo!!!

We can be found on Facebook.
