McCLATCHEY

Devereaux Fore McClatchey III

June 1, 906 – August 30, 1993

Dorothy E. Methvin McClatchey

May 8, 1907 – June 1, 2009

Devereaux and Dorothy McClatchey had a large art collection from their travels.  To grace their family plot they chose two statues.  One statue tucked under an evergreen on the plot depicts a mother and child with writing that says, “God is love.  That is all we know on earth and all we need to know—“.  The other is a woman with her arms clutched and her head bowed, possibly portraying sorrow and grief.
