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.

Arthur R. Olson Memorial photo
Thank you so much for the photo of my uncle's marker...and the pleasant surprise that my aunt Elma was included on his marker. Based on the plot #s for Lloyd Givart buried with his 1st wife and Elma Givart, it appears Elma was buried beside Lloyd. She actually had a longer marriage with uncle Lloyd than she did with uncle Art. I was saddened to see that Lloyd's daughter Connie had passed. I had not seen that link before.

You thank Kathleen B #46845386 for additional information on Arthur Olson's memorial. Do you know who this is? The fact she had that info leads me to believe she is related. I would be interested in connecting with her.

Are you related to either Art Olson or Lloyd Givart. Elma is my dad's eldest sister.

Find A Grave memorial # 61951554

I just this morning came across the Find a Grave memorial that was created by MDiggens for William David Tate - Find A Grave memorial # 61951554. I assume you asked MDiggens for a transfer of this memorial to you.

I'm curious to know what your connection to Bill was. Are you related to him some way? I ask because he was my step-father for over 30 years and I am afraid I have never come across your name before as someone who was related to him. Not trying to offend here - just stating what is as I know it.

If you are not related to him I would like to ask for a transfer of his memorial as I have quite bit of information I could add to his memorial. His Find A Grave memorial # is 61951554 and my Find A Grave Contributor # is 47183199. Thanks and best wishes to you - Kelly

Just wanted to thank you for the work you do. If it hadn't been for you, no one would have known that my mother - Billie Elaine Worthen - was ever buried in Boise. We so appreciate all you do!

Gma Margaret's middle name was Ann and would often go by Annie. She came from England to Canada as an indentured servant. She wed Mr Glenn, no surviving children. Then she wed Mr Moudy, from which Aunt Flo and Aunt Pearl were the only 2 surviving children. With Gpa Temp, Uncle Bayard and Gpa Elmer (Charles Elmer) survived. Only about half of the children Gma Margaret had made it to adulthood. Us cousins are looking into a headstone for them. We are in OR...any suggestions?
Thanks so much for posting my great grandparents.
PS...Baby Jay was Aunt Pearls son. He was born 5 days after her brother Charles Elmer.
