As soon as I saw this grave in Sorrento Cemetery, on the southern end of the Mornington Peninsula, I thought that it looked like the shape of a home.
When I read the inscription, I thought that it was intended to look like a home.
Here is a view of the grave's position in the cemetery.
Right next to the grave is a seat for staying awhile.
But the real surprise came when I checked out Suzanne's death notice with her funeral directors.
There were some words of high praise.
A heroine of our time.
I had a feeling that there was more story to be told.
And in The Age April 15, 2008, I found an article entitled An Active Mind Blooming With Ideas. It was all about Suzanne Hunt.
Hunt practised as a museum curator, archivist, garden historian and writer. Her community activities ranged from involvement in her children's scout group to keep it from folding, to presidency of her local Liberal Party branch.
For her, history was not an academic pursuit but a lively exploration of ordinary people, things and places, and of the tales they could tell.
She sounds like a beautiful person loved by far more than her own family.
And in the midst of all her achievements, she had a 19 year battle with cancer.

Perhaps the building shape may represent a museum - protecting treasures.
Challenges inspired her day
