Long Description:
A heartbreaking elaborate granite tombstone and bier for a beautiful 22 year old child stads tall in the Chevra-Thilim Jewish Cenetery in New Orleans. As we looked at this monument, we could not help but feel a her parent's grief.

On the column, the parents have affixed a photo of thir daughter, who will look out at visitors, forever young.

The tombstone is inscribed as follows:

"GOLDIE KARNOFSKY
Born Sept. 2, 1894
Died Nov 1, 1918
Daughter
Sweet be her slumber"

Digging a bit on Ancestry, we discover that her family worshipped at Congregation Tereme Derech in New Orleans from an index record of her burial.

We were not able to find out any more information about her or her family. There are other Karnofskys at this cemetery, but we have no evidence that we could find that they are connected to Goldie Karnofsky.
