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.

Lost love
Hi Kathleen, I hope all is well with you!! As I was browsing through my hints, I saw a burial ground with the head stone that read Willie Belle Clay born in 1924 and passed the 8-25-2000 and I believe her to be my great aunt.......let me explain I did the AncestryDNA and I get all kinds of hints. And I'm hoping this to be the correct one I'm over excited..........and if you can enlighten me with a little more information please!!

Dear Mrs. Bilbrey,

I'm interested to know whether or not you are a member of Mr. Guzik's family. I noticed that you have a photo of him in his Army uniform and would like to know if you have any info regarding his service?
I'm detailing a history of a bomb group of which he was a member, and would like to get some particulars related to his military service.

If not, might I be able to use your photo in a memorial website?

Thank you.

Hey. Checkin in with you
Hi Kathleen, I hope your PET scans are still tested well for you. My husband's last scan tested " no cancer detected" and that was a huge relief.

We have had the opportunity to visit Spring Hill and I took a lot of headstone photographs and adding them on memorials if a memorial is present.

They had been mowing the lawns so grass was on many headstones. Since you have done this volunteer photographing headstones longer than We have., we did agree Spring Hill is strict, huge and we need to build ourselves a handy list... Hand brush, etc to clear off the headstones.

How do you, if I may ask, make such clear headstone pictures when the headstone is so dark, under a tree that casts shadows, flower vases obstruct dates with casting shadows as you do?

Please know your time and devotion in helping so many on this site is greatly appreciated. You are appreciated more than you know ❤️

Hope this finds you and your family well.

Your friend,
