Paris 2017: Cimetière de Passy: Rosemonde Gérard

Rosemonde Gérard (1866–1953) was the wife of the writer Edmond Rostand (1868–1918), whose grave in Marseille I showed here. She too was an acclaimed writer, notably for her poetical works- Les Pipeaux (1889) and L’Arc-en-Ciel (1926).

Edmond and Rosemonde's son Maurice Rostand (1891–1968), poet and novelist, is also buried here. His memoire Confession d'un demi-siècle (1948) is one of his mosst well-known works.
