Tombstone Tuesday - Pauline Luise Jenny Sedat, 1872-1939

In this series, I am providing pictures of tombstones from Latvian cemeteries, all with death dates prior to 1945. I do not have any further information on the people mentioned.

Today we have another German tombstone.

Top inscription: Hier ruht in Gottes Heilgem frieden mein Unvergessliches innig geliebtes tantchen (“Here in God’s holy peace rests my dearly beloved aunt”?)

Name: Pauline Luise Jenny Sedat, born April 21, 1872, died December 19, 1939.

Bottom inscription: Jesus spricht: Ich bin die Auferstehung und das Leben. Wer an mich glaubt, der wird leben, ob er gleich stürbe. – Johannes 11:25 (“Jesus said: I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die. – John 11:25)

Location: Meža kapi, Rīga

Inscriptions are in German, translations and any translation errors are mine, though dictionaries tell me that some of the words on the stone could be misspelled.
