Alaska Nellie and her headstone fundraiser

Check out this link to Helen Hegener’s article about Alaska Nellie which includes photos and a short movie clip from 1940 featuring Nellie. I learned why the Lawing headstone has a pineapple on it. Pretty interesting!

There is also a link to¬†Alaska Nellie’s Headstone Fund to raise money for a new headstone. The back of the headstone collapsed in November 2013.
