Wife of Theodore Gerrish

I am not related to Mr. Gerrish but enjoyed reading a Private's Life. This is such an important book, since it contains the description of the "charge" at Little Round Top which was used by Ken Burns in the Civil War TV series. After the war, Mr. Gerrish became a minister and invested in land in the midwest. A few years ago I placed flowers on Memorial Day at Mr. Gerrish's grave site in Portland, where his daughter (who died young) is also buried. However, his wife is not interred in the very impressive family plot. Does anyone know where she is buried?
