Tyler Memorial Cemetery Burials

Tyler, Texas
By Matthew D. Wittmer

David Koresh, his mother Bonnie Haldeman, and Bonnie’s husband Roy Haldeman are all buried next to each other in the back part of this cemetery. Bonnie was stabbed to death on January 23, 2009 by her sister who suffered mental illness. I’ve included a photo here that I took of Bonnie, Clive Doyle, and Sheila Martin in Bonnie’s front yard in August of 2008. It was exhibited on her casket at her funeral.
