All 74-year-old US Navy Veteran Madelynn Taylor wants is to be interred with her wife at Idaho Veterans Cemetary, but the cemetery has refused based on her sexuality. Taylor’s wife, Jean Mixner, died in 2012 and when Taylor went to reserve a spot alongside her partner’s ashes, the cemetery denied the request. “I’m not surprised.” Taylor said. “I’ve been discriminated against for 70 years, and they might as well discriminate against me in death as well as life.” The cemetery, according to a spokesperson, says that they are just following Idaho’s state constitution that defines marriage as the union between one man and one woman. “I don’t see where the ashes of a couple old lesbians is going to hurt anyone,” Taylor said.
