Bio and Links
Bio Photo Howdy hi! While you're here, I'd appreciate it if you'd leave a flower for my grandma, Lola June "Nan" Beckstead. She passed away in 2009, and things just haven't been quite the same since then.

I got into Find A Grave after Nan passed away. There was some animosity within my family, and as a result, she never had an obituary in the paper and she was never interred with Grandpa like she wanted. I felt like everyone was trying to forget my Nanny. A couple years after her passing I made her a memorial on Find A Grave so I could have somewhere to go to remember her, and let everyone know what a great person she was.

After I made her memorial I made one for my grandpa, and my great-grandparents, and eventually I started taking pictures at local cemeteries and making memorials for people I didn't even know. I enjoy the research aspect, but most importantly I don't want anyone to be forgotten, just like I made sure Nan wasn't.

When I'm not out graving I'm an avid crocheter and crazy cat lady, and I'm rather fond of sitting around playing video games instead of getting a haircut and/or a real job. I've also recently taken up fishkeeping.

I've lived all of my life in Reno, Nevada, but most of my ancestors hail from Utah. My family tree includes the following surnames: Beckstead, Butterfield, Channing, Childs, Cowdell, Dody, Haddenham, Jacobsen, Jenkins, Johnson, Reed and Thompson.

I will transfer any of my memorials to anyone that requests them (except of course my grandparents, Francis & Lola Beckstead, and my great-grandparents, Lizzie & David Channing and Ivies & Myrtle Beckstead). Whether it's out of guidelines or in bulk; if you can make the memorial(s) better, you are welcome to manage. Also feel free to use my photos, there is no need to ask permission or credit me.

If you're not a member of Find A Grave but would like me to make corrections to a memorial, feel free to send me an email! Make sure to include either a link to the memorial(s) you want corrected, or the memorial number.

If I haven't responded to your correction/email in 3-4 days, send me a message here or shoot me another email! Sometimes old-style corrections get lost in the mass of "Edit Processed" emails, or I just flat-out forget (I have a bad habit of reading emails at 3 am, marking them as read, then going to sleep and forgetting about them, lol).

Thank you.
So sorry to hear of your grandmother's passing. Mine is interred in Carson City. You are so kind and generous to have made a record of her. Today was her birthday. And I found her online! Many thanks.

Thanks!! Scott has been moved! If you come across his obit, just ask for a transfer so you can manage his memorial....

Absolutely, Alexandra --
So glad you could use the info, and so glad I was alerted that I had added a duplicate. Your memorial looks great!

JT Britt @ GGNC
No my knowledge the headstone for JT Britt in Golden Gate Cemetery is just that; there are no cenotaphs in Section 2C. It appears that JT was a very lucky man - he loved two women enough to want to spend eternity with both of them. I'm happy for him. -T

re:Gregory Wiltse
I've added the information you supplied. And even found Greg's senior high school picture and added to his memorial.
