Service Officer’s Corner For November.

Since my last report of 10/20/15 I have resolved the mystery of the headstone. I went to the Modesto Court house records an purchased a death certificate for the veteran, Tony Oliver Paniagua, whose name was on the headstone. Shortly after he died his wife passed on. Therefore, a new headstone was made up with both the veteran and wife’s names on the headstone and they are buried at Santa Nella.

Someone apparently stole the headstone from Santa Nella and it ended up in Turlock.

I returned the headstone to Allen’s Mortuary in Turlock and they in turn called Santa Nella and they will pick it up.

The copy of the death certificate helped resolve the answers.
