Bio and Links
Bio Photo ********Please note that I have been ill for several weeks with very limited internet access. I will get to requests as I am able.**********My name is Becky and I'm a friend to all animals and most people. I'm an American, a Montanan, a 911 Dispatcher, an EMT, a writer, a Republican, an aviation and maritime enthusiast, a firearms enthusiast, genealogist, a pianist, an aspiring violinist, and a frustrated Raiders fan.

I have an affinity for lighthouses, airplanes and most shades of purple. I was born in Utah, reared in Montana, and consider myself a Michigander at heart. My favorite states are Montana, Michigan, and Maryland. But, I haven't been to Hawai'i yet!

I believe in God the Eternal Father and in His son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.

I love my country and am PROUD to be an American. I support our military. I thank our veterans and those of our allies. We owe them so much. Thank you seems so small a gesture for those who have given so much so that we could be and stay free.

I am a proud missionary aunt to Greg serving in Arizona. Also, pseudo-aunt, I guess, to Joe, a member of my local congregation, serving in California and Josie, a former member of my congregation serving in Mexico. I hope to follow their example someday.

There are so many people that I have a deep respect for. My parents, Walter Maurice Warner and Mildred Elnora (Nash) Warner, and my sister, Brenda Lee Warner, are among them. I suppose my favorite person ever would be my Grandma, Mary Etta (Bradley) Nash.

My ancestry includes Mi'kmaq, French, Irish, English, Scottish, French Canadian, Acadian, and others we haven't confirmed yet.

My roots run deep in Michigan, Utah, Georgia, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Nova Scotia and Quebec.

I have been adding burials from many Southwest Montana cemeteries. I have added burials from the Montana state orphanage at Twin Bridges and the state Children's Home and Hospital in Helena. I have this listed in my virtual cemeteries.

I do this because I believe that every person/being is important and deserves to be remembered. And, if just one person finds a long-lost relative or friend from my efforts, my time has been worth it.

One of my favorite TV shows as a child was The Waltons. In a guest appearance as Martha Corinne Walton, Beulah Bondi said it best, "Neglected graves are a shameful thing." I have seen some very neglected cemeteries. But, neglected veterans' graves upset me the most. I don't believe in "non-perpetual care." I want to make something clear. When I say that neglected graves are shameful, I am talking about physical neglect-- strewn with rubbish, overgrowth, gopher holes, etc. I do not in any way mean that a grave is neglected if loved ones are unable to visit it often. Why anyone would think that is beyond me, but I've gotten enough emails that I felt the need to explain that.

For reasons I don't always understand, some people are offended to find their loved ones listed on a genealogical website. Obviously, they are not genealogists themselves. While I may not always understand their feelings, I do respect them. If a record I've added is of your loved one and you want it removed, let me know POLITELY (unlike one dolt who threatened to kill me and erroneously thought that I didn't have access to enough information about him through a single e-mail to file charges) and I will gladly remove it. I am also happy to transfer ownership to relatives. Also, feel free to use any of the headstone photos I've added for non-commercial genealogical purposes.

Rosie of Royal Oak
Couture descendant
Hi Becky,

I came across your hint for my 7th great grandmother, Anne Aymard Couture (on ancestry.com). Do you know what cemetery she or Guillaume are buried?

I am my family's genealogist for Couture and my mother's Finnish ancestry, Kaiponen.

Which child of Guillaume and Anne do you descend from? I am from Joseph Auger Couture, their 10th child.

I am a volunteer for findagrave.com too.

Happy to hear from you soon!

Rosie Couture in Royal Oak, MI

Thank you, truly
I have been searching for my grandmother's remembrance piece online for a long time now. I thought I would never see it. I was 17 and working full time so I wasn't able to go to Montana to pay my respects to her. Being able to at least have this means so much. Betty Lee Huff Olson, thank you for giving her grandson a chance to say goodbye.

Hi Becky,
I am sorry you have been ill. There seem to be a lot of people on here who aren't very well. I hope you feel better soon. Take care of yourself.

ID Military in Westlawn-Hillcrest
We are currently working to identify anyone buried in Westlawn-Hillcrest Cemetery Omaha NE that has served in the military. If you have a loved one buried there or know of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day. This project is sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge #326.

If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.

Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.

Helen Williams
I have submitted an edit for Helen Williams, spouse of Glenn Williams, both buried in the Montana State Veterans Cemetery.

Helen was my mother's sister. Her name was Helen Margaret Gebhardt Williams.

She was a nurse, mother, grandmother and great grandmother and a wonderful aunt. Her granddaughters still live in the Helena area.
