Mysteries on the obituary page

At first, it seemed like a mistake on Saturday’s (and Sunday’s) obituary page in the Star Tribune.

Two people, same picture. Some mistake.

But it’s not a mistake, a careful reading of the obituaries for Kimberly Gail Rust and and Caitlin Rowan reveals. They are the same person.



Of the approximately seven funeral homes in the Zanesville, Ohio area, none lists an obituary for either Ms. Rust or Ms. Rowan.

We are turning to the Internet to solve the mystery.

Do that thing you do, Internet.

[Update 3:27 p.m. ] — Mystery solved. Sort of. She changed her name to Rowan in 1984, a reader advises.
