Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired in Boise, Idaho. I have loved spending time in cemeteries since I was a little girl. Helping people by exploring cemeteries and photographing grave markers for them is a dream retirement activity for me.

I walk the rows taking random photos when I am in a cemetery, and add the photos or the entire memorial to Findagrave if they are not in. I particularly concentrate on veterans (and their spouses), infants and children. I feel the veterans have earned the right to go to the front of the line. And I feel that since the babies and the children got so little on earth, at least I can give them some electronic "life".

I am always happy to add any information to a memorial I manage. Just send it. I am also delighted to add obituaries; just make sure that I have the correct attribution to add so the paper's copyright is respected.

If you find any errors of fact, date, relationship, or spelling on any of my memorials, please let me know. As a former professional proofreader, I KNOW that no one is perfect all the time, including me. I will fix it.

I will transfer management of memorials in line with the Findagrave guidelines, which specify relatives in a direct line. Specifically, they say: "Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred." Please do not ask.

Sue Ann,

Thanks for taking the photo of the area where Fred is buried. Understand there is no gravestone but at least we now know. For your info, Ellen Bennett was Fred's sister-in-law. Thanks again.

RE: Fullerton Photos
The important information is readable. I could tell you had to work for the photos. I've found that some cemeteries around here work harder than others to preserve the grave markers. It's so good to have the photos because I'm sure that some markers won't be legible in a few years. Thank you again.

Hello, I recently had a headstone placed for my GGgrandparents Matthew and Hettie. Unfortunately I live in Calif. and cannot get to Star Cemetery to take a picture and add it to each of their Find A Grave sites. Would you be able to do that for me? Thanks, Dixie
