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."

Patricia and Bobbie Ream
Thank you so much for the photos of Patricia and Bobbie's tombstone. I really appreciate this. Please be aware that there are some problems with email notifications for photos. I did not get one for your photo but have been watching carefully. Admins are aware of the problem and working on a fix, but if you don't get many thank you's, this may be the reason. Your work is really important. Thank you again!

re: Betty Jean Kersey
Sue, thank you so much for taking the excellent photo of her headstone. She was my aunt-in-law's little sister who died far too young. I appreciate it very much.

RE: Ruby Oliason
Thank you so much. Cloverdale said they would call us when the plate was up and I was out looking last week to see...It must have just been attached within the last few days.

Ruby's son does not seem interested in placing the DAR emblem. (So sorry!) But it is on the memorial (photo I took at another DAR grave marking.)

Thank you for all you do and have done.

Thank you so much for your time and gas to get this picture of Doc's headstone for me. I have been looking a long time to find out where he was buried and finally found it last week. Thanks again for all you do.

Thank you so very much for fulfilling my photo requests for my husband's uncle and aunt. I can't wait to let other family members know that they can now see their markers. We greatly appreciate your time and effort. God Bless You!!!!

Theodore Lloyd Baker
Sorry hit enter before got to note....

Theodore is my grandfather and I am very thankful that you have done this page. Here is a short little bit of information if you want to edit the page--I can't give you all the great-grandchildren's names because I don't keep in touch with Dorothy's son's.

He is survived by his daughters Dorothy Anne Crick and Dolores Ann Hagen.

His grandchildren are Johnny Atkins, Tommy Atkins (deceased), David Atkins, Edith Grace Iwanski and Jerry Lloyd Lau

If I find any other information while I am working on the family tree I will be happy to send it to you. Again thank you for doing this page and If you did Doris's page she has a daughter Nancy Lowe.
