Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thank you for stopping by my profile page on findagrave.

I first started using findagrave to locate "famous" graves and quickly became more interested in the non famous side of findagrave. I love walking through cemeteries and photographing all the history they hold.
After the passing of my beloved grandmother Dorothy Johler Cruser I decided to start adding all of my family, which lead to my love of genealogy. I believe everyone should know where they came from and findagrave is an excellent way of leaving a place for future generations to search. I also enjoy strolling through all the other memorials on here and reading everyone's stories. I always leave a token when I visit as a way of letting their loved ones know they were visited and thought of.

On April 8,2014 I lost my best friend, my cousin Cindy Lou Corby Ritter, please stop by and leave her a token. Her loss has been extremely difficult on all of our family.

Please visit my very dear friend, who passed away on 1/10/11 Tiffany Michele Spangenburg.

Thank You to those of you who leave tokens on the memorials of my loved ones.

Hi Dorothy, I noticed that you created a memorial for my daughter. I wish it didn't take me so long to notice who created this for my Mia. I want to thank you very much for being so kind. I'm very grateful. If you notice I posted some photos so you can see my beautiful daughter. Thank You so much. Mia's Mom, Doreen Diaz

I see by the tombstone for Steven Hauenstein it mentions Elizabeth H (Hauenstein) Kagler. She is also place in Glen Dyberry, and I would appreciate it if you'd add the picture there as well.

Hauenstein / Wildenstein/ Geuther

Can I ask a favor please? I created quite a few memorials in 2012 and placed them in Glen Dyberry as the Find A Grave listing indicated that Riverdale merged with that cemetery. I see that many of my relatives had duplicate memorials created in RIVERDALE and that you added photos to them. I have asked the duplicate creator to delete them, but could you please add the photos? The family names are Wildenstein (Veit, Margaret, W.Martin) ; Hauenstein (Frank, Stephen, Nancy) and Geuther (Pauline and George)

Thanks for you time,

My mom is Glee Zusi but started out as Glee Cruser in 1930. Her parents were Homer and Carolyn. Homer, son of Henry Wells Cruser, son of Bela and Charlotte. Bella was Henry and Julie Abigail's kid....

I'm only 3 hours in!

All my best,
