Bio Photo My mother's memorial page is now on the "online stroll"!!!!

Her brother, my uncle, recently passed:

Rev. Ernie Neufeld
Find A Grave business:

If you want to change information, click on the "EDIT" tab at the top right of the memorial and add the information in the areas given. I won't make edits based on information sent directly to my email address or addressed in the Messages forum.

Please submit a summary of obituary information to the memorials I manage. I try to avoid including survivors when referencing recent obituaries.


*If you find a memorial that is DUPLICATED, please click on the edit tab and fill out the form. *I've inherited some --I can't just delete those, I have to contact FAG to delete them, so I will mark such as "duplicates" until they are deleted.
BURIAL "UNKNOWNS": Persons are more important than places: lives more valuable than locations; connections have more meaning than caskets. This site may be the only "graveyard" a loved one can go to to find a friend, family member, or ancestor. I have created pages for family, and been delighted to find a photo and location later confirmed. It's ideal to know the disposition of a body, yes, but more important to acknowledge the departure of a life. A grave is anywhere we go to honor a memory.

I'll transfer most any memorials if someone is not known, or related, to me. Please be as specific as you can in stating relationships.

I have interests in art, photography, history, and writing. My husband and I have two college aged sons.
I believe in and try to follow Jesus every day and in every aspect. The Kingdom coming on earth begins with those who are faithful doing the will of God through Christ in all we say or do on this earth and in this life, not because of eternal reward, but because the world needs us and the message of salvation, and redemption of all Creation. Peace on earth, good will to all.

Thanks and blessings to all who work so hard to make Find A Grave one of my favorite "social networks"! Appreciation as well to those who put the tributes on memorials. Everyone makes a valuable contribution!

RE: Deborah Sue Coleman
I thank you for having the memorial and a pic of her marker. I have never seen it before. I live in MO. and was not sure where she was even buried. My family never told me. I found the title to the grave site last year and have now found out where she is buried and I will be there this Memorial weekend to honer her grave. We are a year apart in age so I never got to meet her that I can remember. I am told that we were sleeping in the same crib the night she passed. The photos of her that I posted are the only ones we have of her. I would appreciate taking over the memorial. Thank you for taking the time to set up the memorial and post a pic of the grave site. You must be from somewhere there in the area and maybe I can meet you and thank you in person when I come there this memorial weekend. Thanks again.

RE: Ernest Neufeld in Mt. Lake Cemetery
Just put in a photo request using the button under the photos. Put a note on the request that says that the marker may not be in place for a while. Find a Grave will send an automatic email when the request is fulfilled. (And message me back if someone deletes it.) With this automated system, you really don't need the note that asks the photographer to contact you. A colleague and I will be working over there around Memorial Day.

RE: David Joseph and Karen Ann Schoemann
Thank you so much for the offer, but Karen was my relative. I really know very little about David's family except the names of his parents. Karen was into genealogy, but I don't think any of her family was. She helped me a lot. I was so honored to be able to make a memorial to her.

You are doing some really valuable work, and I am going to start doing the same with a very large cemetery in Austin, Texas, next month. I am so looking forward to paying it all forward.

Do you have any idea who puts out the flowers. I see there are some on the grave again.

Thank you for such a nice photo. I can almost walk across that ditch virtually.)
