I live in the Disneyland area of Orange County, CA where I have been Caregiving since 1995. |
My Mother, Bonnie Jean McPheeters Schneider, had 77 Years of life and I am absolutely certain that this is what she wanted me to do after her passing. My Father is 89 and his Sister also passed in 2010; her 1978 Olds is a good vehicle that I named "Betsy" and she provides good transportation around the Orange County vicinity.

I was just told that if you added the photo for
Saint Johns Lutheran Cemetery on Fairhaven you are the one who can go in and correct the type O
from Fairlawn to Fairhaven just by returning to the post photo site.
That is in Santa Ana on Fairhaven, Orange county.
Good luck, :-)
|Amy Stapleton||Thank you|
Thank you for leaving flowers at my daughter's page.

Thanks for adding the picture to my aunt Lora Aileen Jemeson. Dilger. I missed the notification. I appreciate your efforts.
I know where 3 of them are and 1 lawn I'll have to walk. The other 2 have some problems, one is suspected to be unmarked and the other was not buried with her husband and I haven't called to see if she is there at all. I changed to anonymous for awhile due to some issues with prior volunteer. That's interesting about the basement. I had heard there are strange happens down there. I took a whole lot of photos down there a couple years ago, but didn't have any supernatural experiences. I'm sure there will be requests for you to do in May.

That's great. I'm glad you got passed the receptionist. They have seen me several times and so they no longer cooperate. So glad you were able to clean up so many.

Well, I hope you have success with that explanation. They are well acquainted with Findagrave volunteers at Fairhaven and haven't in the past been very cooperative. Let me know how the office visit goes. I really hope they are cooperative, there are a lot of family members waiting for their photos.

Fairhaven used to be more friendly, but there have been a lot of volunteers over the last 3 years that went into the office and demanded information. Additionally, new receptionists have been hired and they are unfriendly too. The second request from the top that you have claimed, is a duplicate memorial. I walked that lawn years ago and photographed every headstone. I would suggest that you try calling for the next three days and request a location for one of your claims per day. It will at least give you the lawn they are in. There is at least one receptionist that will give you a location and sometimes you get transferred to a counselor. Just tell them you are looking for a relative. I haven't tried this, but if you look on their website under "contact us" they do mention family research location information. You might try emailing on one or two of them. Otherwise, once you get the location, it's a lot of walking. There are no number markers in the lawns. There also is a roaming security car most days that usually doesn't bother you. If you go into the office Monday, say you are looking for a few relatives and they should give you to a counselor and if they help you, they will give you a map which would really help you find them. It will only work once, they will recognize you if you go in the office a second time. This cemetery is not an easy place to do volunteer work. I'm used to it, but someday I will not be able to walk it anymore.
At least Westminster is well marked within the sections. I stopped going there years ago unless I have a location. However, the new person working that cemetery tells me that they are cooperating thus far with him. I think he calls first and doesn't show up with a list. Hope this is helpful.

I haven't made any plans to go at this point. Sometimes, I just go on a whim, depending how I am feeling. Just so you know Fairhaven is not friendly to volunteers and I never go into the office. I simply walk the whole lawn looking for the grave. A tedious and time consuming endeavor.
