Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Mother of 2 boys and 2 girls and a grandma of 4 granddaughters and 3 grandsons.
I am a transplant from Michigan who graduated from L'anse Creuse High School in Mount Clemens Michigan 1966. I was the sixth child of Leonard Joseph Fleury and Florence Jean (Simpson) Fleury. I now live in Goodlettsville Tennessee, north of Nashville ,with a ridgerunner for a hubby, who I met when he was in the Air Force at Selfridge Air Force Base in 1967, and now he is retired from Dupont.
Email me if there is anything that needs to be made right on my inputs.
'Blackeyedpeas' is the nicname that was given to me by my Father, Leonard Joseph Fleury, when I was a little girl, because my eyes are brown. My hubby has a nicname he had from where he retired from Dupont, it is called 'Cornbread'.

My dad also gave me another nicname , it is Kickkee, I have been doing Ancestry research on Surnames of Fleury, Bilbrey, Reno, also spelled Renaud, Simpson, Warner, Anstett, Worley, Howard, Nantais, Coker.
My sister Irene (Fleury) Young passed away July 7, 2006 if you leave a flower or a gift on her interment it would be very appreciated,you can find it as an off shoot of my Mom's interment, Florence Jean (Simpson) Fleury.
If there are any who put gifs and flowers on my family or friends interments which are mostly in my Sponserships, I thank you all so very much, and I will also try to do the same for your loved ones.
I also look for duplicates in the cemeteries I put flowers in and I will tell the members about them so they can be deleted .
So if anyone finds duplicates on my interments please let me know.

I use to take request pictures at a few Cemeterys near us, National Cemetery,Forest Lawn, and a few others . There are other members who take up pic requests in this area also .
I really do hope someone takes up the requests you made in Spring Hill and the others .

if I have any interments that I have made in my profile as to date and you see any that may be your family ,please let me know so that I can transfer them to you.
Keep up the good work you and yours do in findagrave .
I have completed my treatments for Radiation and Chemo in this month of Jan 2015. But I will not be helping with pics anymore.

For the familys of any interments in Forest Lawn Cemetery here in Goodlettesville TN where I sometimes I did take requests, the cemetery has a way to have real flowers placed on interments for special occasions 3 times a year for a fee , and if anyone is interested they may call the Forest Lawn office to set it up.

I was informed by the Ladies who run the office in The National Cemetery here in Madison Tennessee that the Kiosk outside the office has the same records in it as the office records have inside , so that means , if the name isnt on the Kiosk then the soldiers are not in this Cemetery. And also there are quite a few unknowns headstones that are interred in the National from the Civil War.

Spring Hill Cemetery is a strict cemetery,I have had problems with office people when I did ask for the locations as a request pic taker , They say only family of interred people there may ask for locations. So if you need a location call office at Spring Hill Cemetery 1-615-865-1101 then say you are family related. Ask for Section#, plot location#, plot#, and grave #. You may need to provide dates. Then add information to the photo request . And if they find the location in the office for you ,ask them to help show whoever comes in for it to go out and help look ,or make a copy of the location on a map , because sometimes it is hard for the pic taker to locate by just the direction itself , whereas the office people may be able to go directly to the grave with them . But make sure you specify someone will come into their offices and you need a family services person to show them where the interment is ,otherwise they may not help.

My photos are for public use and permission to use them are not needed. And your very welcome

Thankyou to all who give me a heads up on my interments if there are things wrong with them in different ways.
I have a flair up of my cancer now which I was cancer free from a couple of years ago .

It came back in my esahphgus this time so I am doing Ceamo and radiation now.
So I will not be doing anymore pics for the cemeteries. Thankyou to all .

First, I am sorry about the blank message. I used the wrong pinky finger. I intended to thank you for transferring Mr. Higdon to me, for which I am indeed thankful. However, I am very saddened to read that you are dealing with a recurrence of cancer. My prayers are with you and I wish you all the best. God bless.

I was surprised to see this memorial transferred to me, but thank you for doing so.

I'm very sorry to read about the return of your cancer and will pray that you can be successful in making it go away again.

Hi, Kathleen. There's a picture of my mother in a gold frame that I'd like to delete from her memorial. Thank for you providing it, but I have added others that I prefer. Would you mind deleting yours, please?

RE: Hi Friend
Thinking of you again - I just added a photo of my Great Aunt Florence Bolling McCulloch at Spring Hill in Nashville. You were so kind to me in my efforts from Florida to get my kin located in this cemetery. My Best wishes to you. Patt

Looking for the connection to Marie Renaud Fleury and sister Fran
Hi Kathleen, my husband and I are traveling to Quebec in August. I'm trying to trace family roots. My grandmother Marie Fouchey Sekol spoke of Marie Renaud Fleury and her sister Fran.My cousin Tom Hageman said his mother, Vera Sekol Hageman, stated our family was related to the Renauds'. I can't find the connection other than my mother(Evelyn Sekol)and father(Herman Sekol, brother to Vera and Sister Eleanor Sekol IHM) talked about them when I was growing up. I was born in 1948.I'm Beverly Sekol Garvin. I live in Norfolk, VA but my brothers and I were born in Detroit, Michigan. I wish I could attach a photo from 1954 of a reunion with the Renauds'/ my mother said Canadian relatives. I believe there was priest who was newly ordained and his sister who was an IHM nun.About 50 people,adults and children were in the photo Please contact me if you have any info. Thank you, Bev

Mary Sue Johnson
Hello, it makes no sense that I would ask to manage the duplicate Mary Sue Johnson memorial because I posted mine before you did yours...very strange. Anyway, please remove yours.
Thanks again.

Please delete two memorials
Hello Kathleen,

I made a mistake creating two duplicate memorials:
Mary Sue Johnson 81641788 and
George Mark Johnson 81641724

I will appreciate it very much if you delete your memorials. I connected my ex-husband, Ralph Owen Johnson to mine.

Thank you for your fine work,
Theodora Richardson

Wanda Sosnowski
Sorry about the previous (non) message - I hit enter by mistake.

Thank you for the memorial for Wanda Sosnowski. You have linked a memorial for her second husband, Walter Sosnowski, with not a lot of info, but he has another memorial #10222964. He is buried with his first wife, Lucille. I will submit an edit to link her to him, but can you delete the link to the other memorial?

Thank you!

Memorial# 17542072

Marjorie was my 1st cousin, 2x removed, although I never had the pleasure of meeting her. You created a beautiful memorial for her, thank you. Did you know her personally?

Robert Kilgore
Memorial #104704126 - is it possible that the state of birth could be Illinois for this person? I a have a 1st cousin 3xremoved named Robert Leroy Kilgore, Pvt. US Army WWI, born 1 Jan 1887.

He was born in Georgetown, Vermillion, Illinois to Robert M. and Mary Louise Briles-Kilgore.

I have been unable to locate his grave.
