Tombstone Tuesday-African Violet Symbol

This tombstone is embellished with the image of African Violets in a tea cup.

African Violets, Zion Lutheran Cemetery, Schumm, Ohio

Violets symbolize someone who is quiet, shy, and humble.

I do not know if this person was quiet and shy or if she just liked and grew African Violets.

Either way, this is a symbol not often seen on a tombstone.
