Barbara Shermund's Grave Marker

The fundraiser to bury the ashes of pioneering cartoonist Barbara Shermund alongside her mother received strong public support. It was organized by Caitlin McGurk, Associate Curator and Assistant Professor of the Ohio State University's Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum, and Amanda Gormley, the artist's half niece. Since December 19, one-hundred fifty-two donors contributed $8676 to the GoFundMe project. The burial took place in May of this year. Now Ms. Gormley writes that on Thursday, September 26, the grave marker was placed.
