MILDRED — “I just can’t believe that something like that would happen,” said Don Mann, whose family’s mausoleum in Mildred’s Fairview Cemetery was vandalized last weekend.
The above-ground vault contains the remains of Mann’s grandmother, Lette, and mother, Mamie, whose caskets were broken into and robbed.
Mann’s grandfather, Louis, built the mausoleum in 1924 because his grandmother “didn’t want to be buried in the ground.”
