  • Name Lorna Mary PARNELL  [1
    Born 27 Feb 1920  Orroroo SA Find all individuals with events at this location  [1, 2
    Gender Female 
    Died 4 Apr 1999  Adelaide SA Find all individuals with events at this location  [3, 4, 5, 6
    Buried 7 Apr 1999  Adelaide SA Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • Lorna died, aged 78 years, on 5th April 1999 in Glenelg -near Adelaide in South Australia.
      On 8th April 1999, she was cremated at the Centennial Park cemetery - near Adelaide. She was interred in that cemetery's Derrick Gardens, path 50, grave 1157B.
      Also, there is a headstone in the Golden Gate National Cemetery for veterans - in San Francisco - plot section S, site 1093. The Golden Gate headstone memorialized Theodore on one side and Lorna on the other. Note that the date of death is incorrect on the headstone (it has 28th Oct 1999 whereas is should be 5th Oct 1999).
      Maybe her ashes were moved from Australia to USA. Or maybe the Golden Gate Headstone memorializes her without the ashes actually being there.
