Johanna Roche Madigan Death Notice, 9/17/1926

I'm loving this Fulton History website lately. Searching for Johanna Madigan never turned up her obituary, and I've discovered why: her first name was misspelled. I was searching around for "Madigan + Rickert" though, and this is what I found:

MADIGAN—On Wednesday. Sept.
15, 1926, at 341 President St.,
JOANNA MADIGAN, beloved mother
of Mrs. Joseph J. Rickert. Funeral
Saturday. 9:30 a.m. Solemn requiem
mass at St. Agnes' R. C. Church. Interment
Holy Cross Cemetery.

She was about 66I wonder why she was buried at Holy Cross when Matthew was buried at Calvary?
