Annie Holl (lot 17, Block O) [marker]

In 1925, the Minneapolis Journal published an editorial titled, “Let Them Rest Undisturbed.”  It marked the beginning of an effort to halt the disinterment of people from Minneapolis Pioneers and Soldiers Cemetery.  Dr. Peter Holl and his wife, Annie, were among the founding members of the Minneapolis Cemetery Protective Association (MCPA).  They worked tirelessly to preserve the cemetery.  Annie died in 1930 and is buried in Hillside Cemetery.  Members of the MCPA erected this monument to honor her commitment to preserving our cemetery.
