Obituary for Alice Shell Jarvis Burnett of Richmond/Henrico

Richmond Times-Dispatch, November 17, 1937:
"MRS. ALICE J. BURNETT - Funeral services for Mrs. Alice J. Burnett, 85, who died Monday at the home of her son, H. L. Jarvis of 2925 Ellwood Avenue, will be held at 2 P. M. today at the residence. Burial will be held in the Ridge Church Cemetery, Henrico County. Surviving are two daughters, Mrs. Eda E. Ambold and Mrs. A. L. Vass; a son, H. L. Jarvis; 11 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren."

Alice is buried in an unmarked grave at Ridge Baptist Church. I walked the entire cemetery and did not find any stone for her. There were some partially buried markers that I did not dig up, one of which could have been hers. I called the church but they do not have records indicating the location of Alice's burial.
