Pictured here is a bevel top gravestone. This stone marker was set above the grave of Jane L. Simpson in a Chicago cemetery in 1966. Her name, date of birth, date of death and the phrase "Mother" were inscribed on the gravestone next to the funerary art, which are the flowers you see pictured above. Her gravestone is slanted with a 2" pitch so that the back of the marker is slightly higher than the front of the marker. Granite is the material of choice for the monument builders at the Peter Troost Monument Company. Gravestones can be designed and built using a variety of colors of granite. Black is a very popular color. More traditional colors include gray, red, pink, green, brown, and white. The monument for Jane L. Simpson was designed using red granite and the face has been sandblasted and polished to produce a gray color.
