This is the headstone of Frances J. Dekle in Sunset Hill Cemetery, Valdosta, Georgia, in Section C203, Block 54, Lot 1. She was born November 22, 1903, and she died November 19, 1993. She’s buried next to her parents, Elmer E. and Frances T. Dekle. Miss Dekle was my first grade teacher at Sallas Mahone Elementary School in Valdosta (the old one that used to be on the corner of Patterson Street and Woodrow Wilson Drive, not the new Sallas Mahone). I happened to pass by her grave when I was visiting the cemetery this past March.
