Bio and Links
Bio Photo I helped co-write state laws to protect our cemeteries here in Texas.
I've been Honored by the Texas State Senate, Texas State House of Representatives, The Dallas County Historical Commission for my work in preserving and protecting our cemeteries. I served on The State Senate Advisory Committee as well as being an Advisor to a number of cities in my area pertaining to cemeteries within their city limits. I have helped in clean ups and restoring a number of cemeteries. I believe very strongly in cemetery preservation. Cemeteries in most cases are the only history of those that came before us. Like rare books in a library once it's lost it's lost forever.
I served six years on the Duncanville City Council, two years as mayor pro-tem.
I've been working on family genealogy since 1976. I'm the wife of Wallace Richards.

The wife lola faye has not died yet. It is against Find A grave policy to add the info before the person dies. We have to assume they are living if the birthdate is 100 years or less in most cases. thanks

thank you for the date info and for the photo of the marker! So many people will add a grave photo and then not even let me know the dates or if a name is different or a maiden name is on there.

Judy,
thanks for the photo and birth date. I added it to the memorial.

Appreciate your taking the photo. I must have overlooked the date as it was in the obituary, but for some reason I didn't pick up on it.

Best Regards,
Bobbie
