Residents of St. Joseph can take pride in the history and beauty of Mount Mora Cemetery. Established in 1851 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Mount Mora's ornate gated entrance and iron fencing creates a beautiful serene 20-acre resting place for those who've passed on. The Mount Mora Cemetery Preservation and Restoration Association is so proud of the cemetery's history that it offers "Voices of the Past" walking history tours each October. Since 2002, local historians have brought several of the deceased back to life - so-tospeak - with unique stories about their lives. The tour theme changes each year, and most people attend the historic evening outings. This year's theme, 4 Cooperation 5 Perspectives 16 Eats 28 Recipes 30 Outdoors 34 Events 40 Neighbors 42 Just4Kids 43 Landscapes photos by Heather Berry "Heroes, Heroines & Humorists," will start with guests being guided through the showy Mausoleum Row, led by Mrs. Simeon Kemper, the (deceased) cemetery owner's wife. She is portrayed by Suzanne Lehr who is shown on our cover. Those touring will meet many characters such as a slave girl who spoke with President Lincoln, and daredevil pilot Margot Reck, portrayed by Jo Anne Grey, who is shown at the right. Margot was a member of the famed all-woman flying corps in World War II. This year's tours are set for Oct. 20 at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m., and Oct. 21 at 6, 7 and 8 p.m. Tickets are sold only in person/in advance through St. Joseph Museums, Inc. at 3406 Frederick Ave., St. Joseph. or by calling 800-530-8866 or 816-232-8471. Tickets are $22 ($20 to museum members). Note: Participants must be at least 14 years of age. OCTOBER 2016 | RURALMISSOURI.COOP 3 http://www.RURALMISSOURI.COOP
