Susan B. (Eads) Neff

This monument for Susan B. (Eads) Neff (circa 1857-1887) features a sheaf of wheat. Typically, this can indicate a long life, but it can also represent immortality, resurrection, and the Body of Christ. Susan was the youngest daughter of Isaac and Mary (Redman) Eads. In 1884, Susan married Edward W. Neff, a railroad worker. In 1887, Susan died at the age of 30 of puerperal pneumonia, which affects women after childbirth. It is unclear what happened to her child as it was not found in other records. Susan’s widower Edward remarried to Margaret (Schuarer) Haupt and was buried in Cave Hill Cemetery. Susan’s parents were buried next to her.
