'gloria dei', to the glory of God, is commonly inscribed on headstones above the date of death. It does not, though, indicate the good lady's name!
The lady's first name was Gloria and her middle name was Dei and I so cropped the photo so as to cut out the surname as she's not dead yet.
not dead yet? whither the gravestone?
Sometimes in America people order gravestones before they die or one spouse dies first and they still carve the name of the still living one on the stone.
...which only confirms what I have always suspected about Americans.
