Regarding Sacramento County WW I Veterans Memorial. The lone woman listed on the marker, Lillie Catherine Todhunter, was a nurse in the US Navy, and died October 21, 1918 of influenza at Mare Island. (This was during the Spanish Flu epidemic.) She was from Sacramento, and by odd coincidence lived on the next block over from my house, all of perhaps 300 ft. from my back door. - AR
