After the Service

The Graveside Ceremony in Oliver

Mourners come to lay flowers on the Casket
The modern movements of feminism were predated a thousand years ago in the USA long before the white man ever came on the scene. The Iroquois Nation held women's rights and thoughts to be so important, all leading decisions were made by the women at the top. Matriarch comes from the two Greek words for "mother" and "to rule," and yesterday we attended the funeral of such a lady of 96, who was considered a matriarch by some of her family. She was not only a leader, but apparently so loved, so loving, popular, and well known in the town, as to be incredibly admired and looked up to by everyone who lived there. Unfortunately we never had the privilege of meeting her.
