April 24, 2017, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM @ Riverside Memorial Park
Since 1936, Lucia Zora, a circus animal trainer billed as “the bravest woman in the world,’’ has lain in an unmarked grave at Riverview Memorial Park in Fort Pierce.
That will change Monday, when a grave marker bearing her name is unveiled and dedicated by Fort Pierce Mayor Linda Hudson.
Mari-Lynn Herringshaw, a great niece of Alispaw, said the graves were those of the Cards and Zora. She concluded that Alispaw, known for being thrifty, never bothered to buy a marker for his late wife. Herringshaw, Hudson and Wilson appeared in a panel discussion in January at the Treasure Coast History Festival sponsored by Indian River Magazine. The discussion prompted the magazine to purchase the grave marker that will be dedicated on Monday.
“In sharing the story of Lucia Zora, we learned of this slight and wanted to correct it. We hope it will become yet another historical site people can visit on the Treasure Coast.’’
