  13. Using all of the information we’ve uncovered as a group about Mona Parsons and her actions you will: • Create a Mona Parson’s Memorial • Few People are aware of Mona Parson’s bravery and sacrifice. There is no memorial to her, and her headstone in Wolfville’sWillowbank Cemetery remembers her only as “wife of…” her second husband, Major General Harry Foster. Imagine you have been asked to design a physical memorial to be placed in Ottawa for Mona Parsons. Draw the kind of memorial you would like to see, then write down an explanation about and be prepared to discuss the choices you made. Final Task
