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.

If she is not listed at Morris Hill or Dry Creek, then she most likely is not buried at either one. So among the potential locations in Boise, that eliminates 2.

Dear Sue Ann,
I really like this second image and the narrative that you gave with it. I took your advice and shifted the order of the images. It is a pretty place. Thank you for helping me honor Daniel.

I just shared an obit with you via message for Mary E Keeler Light, who I believe is actually Mary E Keleher Light, I also shared the parents links in the edits. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Dear Sue,
Thank you for taking the image of the area where Daniel Edward Smith is buried. I added a note that there is a caption with the picture, defining the location of Mr. Smith's unmarked grave as you requested.

It is nice to know that there is not a marker and to have information about who was buried next to him. I appreciate all of your time and effort to take the image and post this information.

I have just returned from a trip from Idaho. The purpose of the trip was to place a marker at the cemetery where Daniel's mother and sister are buried. The cemetery is located east of Warren, Idaho and it overlooks the South Fork of the Salmon River.

Thank you again.

Sue thank you very much for the photo's that you took for me of Marvin J. & Geraldine Bailey, they fill in a blank spot in the family tree. Thanks again.
