Tombstone Tuesday -- Gravestone of Susannah (Reed) Gates (1745-1833) in Gardner, Massachusetts

I have collected a number of gravestone photographs from Find A Grave over many years, and thought I would share them one at a time for Tombstone Tuesday.

Here is the gravestone of my 5th great-grandmother, Susanna (Reed) Gates (1745-1833), in the Old Burying Ground in Gardner, Massachusetts:

The inscription says:
relict of
Dec. 18, 1833
AE. 88

My thanks to Ed Poulin for creating the Find A Grave memorial, and to Marc Brouillette for providing the photograph for the memorial.  The source citation for this memorial is:
