Bio Photo I have been receiving in excess of 30 e-mails a day, so if I do not get back to you in a timely manner, please have a little patience. Thank you!


...Once upon a time I walked across this hard, cold earth, and when I reached the end of my journey I looked back and beheld that the winds of time had erased all signs that I was ever here. But if you look closely, you will see an indentation here and a groove there, and if we are both very lucky you will find a foot print. And if you will look and find the signs of my passing, and remember me for a day or a season, I will be grateful.

Hello, you have requested photos at Woodlawn Cemetery in Forest Park, IL. I would be happy to try and look for your request but it can be quite difficult to find a grave without any location provided. Please call the cemetery and request the grave location. They can be reached by phone at (708) 442-8500. Once you have obtained a location please update the memorial in question with the plot information. Thank you.

You don't have a cemetery listed for Gwendolyne. I found her next to her husband Lemmie at Rosewood cemetery in Lasalle MI

Your Quotation (above ^)
I came across the quotation you wrote quite by chance, while researching distant relatives of my future d-i-l. Your words are quite moving, and I hope -- someday, far off in the future -- someone may think of me in that way. Thank you for your creative thoughfulness. =]) Beth

Barbara Ann Pendleton #105367376
Hi Kurt:

I have been informed of a duplicate memorial for Barbara Pendleton as she is not in Zion Lutheran Cemetery as stated in her obituary.

I checked for the correct burial location and the obituary has an error.

Therefore, I suggest you delete the memorial you have for her as the memorial I have is from Woodland Cemetery burial records.

Thanks, Jane
