Saint Dorothea
"To the glory of God and in loving memory of Eva A. McBride, died June 12, 1934. God grant unto her eternal rest"

According to the fourth-century church historian, Eusebius, Dorothea was a Christian noblewoman who lived in Alexandria. Maximinus Daia fell in love with her but because she rejected him, he condemned her to exile (Eusebius H.E. 8.14).

There is also a legendary Dorothea of Caesarea in Cappadocia.

In the calendar of saints, she is usually remembered on February 6.
