Indiana AndersonMrs. Indiana Anderson lies interred in the cemetery of The First Baptist Church, Midlothian. Her headstone with the words “At Rest” encircled by ivy reflect the attributes of friendship, fidelity and the promise of immortality. The monument’s panel is neatly bordered and includes corner fans. Indiana’s name and dates are beneath the word, “Mother.” It is an endearing memorial to a beloved family matriarch and member of the Midlothian community.
