Bio Photo Melissa Lively Sherry

Hello! I am Melissa Sherry. I am a mom to 3 boys. I earned the "Grandma status" with my first granddaughter born in May 2012! I am happily married to my sweetheart hubby, Dean. We reside in Washington State.

LDS & Love Family research!

Hobbies are Piano & Organ, Ham radio (KE7WCR), and cemetery photographing

Researching surnames of Lively (Maiden name), Blaser, Howland, Over, Carper.

Will gladly take photo's of cemetery plots of surrounding area's.

Please feel free to email me of any corrections needed of friends, Family or transfers of your Family members that are within the guidelines of Find A Grave.

(Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. I am usually willing to transfer most family members to you. I would like to know your relationship, no matter how distant, if you would like transfers. Otherwise no transfer.)

If they are just an acquaintance, someone you knew with NO RELATION to you they will not be transferred. Most of my entries here on FAG were put on here with MANY hours of MY work at the local cemeteries.. (Will consider under special circumstances only)

If anyone would like any information added just email me with a note with your name and I will be happy to add it with your name.

I only transfer within Find A Grave mandatory transfer guidelines. I do edits very quickly and will be happy to add anything you would like.

Thank you for the transfer. I've updated the memorial, and I do hope that his family finds him. I did notice that there are two identical photos of the grave loaded to the memorial. (I'm guessing you hadn't noticed since you have contributed so many to Find-A-Grave!!!) Could you delete the second one, please? That way, when family finds him, there will be room for personal and family photos. Thanks! ~Evey :-)

I noticed you have made a Find A Grave memorial for my Great Ante Bertha J. (Jellum) Carlson and if you will allow me to to I'd love it if you would transfer it to me. I've already set up all the memorials at the Highland Cemetery in La Center, Washington and would love to connect Ante Bertha too. Right now we live in Oak Harbor, WA but soon I'm going to be retiring and then the fun starts. We'er going to travel around the country and look up people from our family tree on
Would like very much to find cemeteries that are not done and provide photos and memorials for those that are yet to be done.
Thanks John Bjorge

Oh BTW You know that the great Moms get promated to Grand Moms.
Heading to Bellingham next weekend to a party for our Fourth Grand Daughter.
Happy Hunting.

Thanks for the gravesite information. I've had a chance to talk with their daughter, and have talked about the two halves of Sumner Cemetery, each side of the road. She said there grave is on the other side of the road, but I was unable to get a north or south side from her cause she assumed it was the west side. I have just recently changed the cemetery from Woodbine to Sumner after talking with her, and am not 100% sure i have it right. I do think that when we find it, there will be a headstone though.

Dear Melissa,
Thanks for the burial info on Frances K. Kirkwood Weick and Frank Budge Weick. I originally thought that that's where they were buried but had some difficulty proving it. I appreciate the updates.

The Abbey...a Project
I will if need be, but thought we could work together to get several locals to go through the Abbey records and the on-ine entries and compare them. Then with the results, approach Find A Grave with a list of the transfers needed to correct the entries. I'm sure the cemeteries involved will appreciate it too with the less number of inquires on the phone and via email or snail mail they will have to reply to, taking away their time from the public they need to deal with in internments and upkeep issues...Let me know if we can get a group of South Sound Find A Grave volunteers and genealogists to assit in this? tnx
