A death mask.

A death mask is a plaster cast created on the deceased face after the person has passed. The cast will make an image for a headstone and other mementos. Headstones created from a cast are exceedingly rare now.

Rosealie is carved as to be lying in a bassinet.

It’s not uncommon to find children’s toys placed around the family headstones. There are two other White children buried here.

Fresh floral arrangements are almost always in the bassinet.
