Yesteryear Rests Peacefully in Fair Oaks Cemetery

By Richard Perez
Posted: 8/28/2014

FAIR OAKS, CA (MPG) - Picturesque Fair Oaks cemetery was founded on October 21, 1902 on a half-acre of land. Ornate headstones commemorating patriarchs lie in close proximity to simple, unnamed grave markers. The list of interments is unique; the first official resident of the grounds was Sarah Vail, a Folsom native who died in a fire and was buried in 1903. There are two other women who were buried in 1898, but Miss Vail is the first authenticated burial at Fair Oaks Cemetery.

Other gravesites include a dozen Civil War veterans from both the Union and Confederate Armies who now share a common ground. Another notable resident is Myrna Opsahl, a 42 year old mother of four who died in 1975 during an early morning bank robbery in Carmichael. She was shot by the infamous Symbionese Liberation Army. (The radical group also kidnapped and brainwashed heiress Patty Hearst during their reign of terror.) Alongside these graves are the plots of early 20th century people who are memorialized with small stone markers listing only last name and year of death. One in particular is a tiny headstone cradled amongst the roots of a large oak tree bearing the inscription: Bishop Baby - 1907. One hundred and seven years later, this little monument still brings on a melancholic sense.
