She knew them all

One day this week Marie Demuth will enter St. Francis Cemetery with a stack of white wooden crosses just as she has for the last five decades.

Using her memory and a carefully compiled list, the 93-year-old widow and her friend will gently place a cross trimmed with paper poppies on each of the graves of 22 deceased members of the American Legion Auxiliary.
