Cemetery

George’s mother, Katie Schamberger, died August 11, 1912. Up until 2008 the mother of the world’s most famous athlete rested in an unmarked grave.

Paul Harris, a semi-retired lawyer, has written a book, “Babe Ruth: The Dark Side.” In researching his book, Harris went to the Holy Redeemer Cemetery and found where Catherine Ruth was buried. Through his efforts, funds were raised to purchase a monument. The story is told in a February 06, 2008 Baltimore Sun article by Rick Maese.
