Fannie Raphael: Long forgotten leader in Ennis’ Jewish community

Welcome friends of Ennis and friends of history. I’m so pleased to see you here in our Hebrew section of Myrtle Cemetery where I am buried along with my dear family. I am Fannie Jolesch Raphael but I will not say when I was born. It’s a dreadful reminder of how very old I would be if I were still alive today. You can glance at my tombstone if you’re curious. First of all, I want to tell you how proud I am of this little bit of land. I was the first president of the Ladies Hebrew Cemetery Society, so it was always very special to me and to the other women on the committee.
