10 Years - 100 Headstones
We Did it! 
        We've purchased our 100th headstone and are very excited to announce the recipient is...
Cora "Lovie" Austin
                  Cora was a Chicago band leader, session musician, composer, singer and                    arranger during the 1920's classic blues era.  She and Lil' Hardin Armstrong         are often ranked as two of the best female, jazz, blues piano players of the period.  She is buried at Mt. Glenwood Memory Gardens in Glenwood, IL

Details of a headstone dedication will be announced soon!  
See you at the Ann Arbor Blues Festival!
