Tombstone Tuesday - J.C. and Alice Lavoie

Today's tombstone is that of my great grandparents, Major Joseph Carmel Lavoie and Alice Bard, along with two of their children, Paul-Emile Lavoie and Marie-Anna Lavoie. Their grave is located in the St. Boniface Roman Catholic Cemetery in St. Boniface, Winnipeg, Manitoba.

An interesting thing about this tombstone is that it reveals two relatives I didn't know existed. Paul-Emile and Marie-Anna both died in the 1930s, when they were in their 20s. They are my dad's aunt and uncle, but he didn't know they existed because they died before he was born.
