Exploring Almost Forgotten Gravesites in the Great State of Ohio

Dedicated to cemetery preservation in the great state of Ohio

"A cemetery may be considered as abandoned when all or practically all of the bodies have been Removed therefrom and no bodies have been buried therein for a great many years, and the cemetery has been so long neglected as entirely to lose its identity as such, and is no longer known, recognized and respected by the public as a cemetery. 1953 OAG 2978."

Dorothy Eleanor Provoznik stone at Calvary Cemetery - Lorain, Ohio

Calvary Cemetery on North Ridge Road in Lorain, Ohio is one of my favorite cemeteries! There are many reasons for my fondness for this cemetery not the least of which is that I have several relatives buried there on my mother's side of the family.
Here are "before" and "after" cleaning views of the Dorothy Eleanor Provoznik stone. The "before" photograph was taken in May of 2005 and the "after" photograph was taken two years later in May of 2007.
Dorothy Eleanor Provoznik was the daughter of Frank and Anna Edna (Zagorsky) Provoznik.
Anna Edna's parents were Michael and Marie Zagorsky. Michael Zagorsky was my maternal grandfather's brother (Andrew Zagorsky).
