Esther Elenora Schlenker Grenz
Hi Truman, Thanks so much for doing the parent and spouse edits for Esther Grenz, #115236297. It's always immensely satisfying to be able to connect the families. Esther is my father's cousin -- his mother was Maria Schlenker Gruneich - sister of Esther's father, Gottlieb, Jr. If you happen to have any information further back from Esther's grandparents, Gottlieb, Sr. and Dorothia (Widmer) Schlenker, I would love to hear from you.

I'm not related to Laura so hope you don't mind me transferring her memorial into your care. That way you can make it however you'd like.
Happy day to you,
PS Love the photo of her. So beautiful!

Ragnar Holm - Kensal Cemetery
Hi Truman -
Could you be so kind to transfer Ragnar John Holm over to me? I am a descendant of the Holm brothers that pioneered in the area when it was still Dakota territory. Ragnar Holm was the last of the first generation Americans to pass away. He was a special man. His uncle and my great great uncle, Andrew Holm, donated the land for the Kensal Cemetery.

Hi Truman Bratteli,
I really like your work on the bios in
Find a Grave. Thanks for your assistance.
As I was looking at the graves at St. Mary's
Cemetery, Dazey, ND, in Barnes county, I noticed that my sister, Rosella Klinger was not listed on Find
a Grave. I truly would like her Bio listed.
I presume I could do it but I am not sure where to get started.
Rosella Margaret Rausch b. Apr 8, 1945, died on
Jul 2, 1984. She was married to Roy Klinger on June
30, 1973. She died in West Fargo, ND and I presume
her obit was in the Fargo Forum. Do you have free
and easy access to the obit ?
I would like her obit posted in Find a Grave.
Thanks. Contact me, Joe Rausch at 858-248-5405 or Hope to hear from you soon.

Donna McEnroe obit

Two days ago I got a "thorough" dressing down from a woman for adding her son's obit to his memorial. I'm sure it would have been a lesser offense to - can't think of anything bad enough!

And I had the audacity to add the memorial before he had been dead six months. I am totally without compassion and she hopes that I have learned my lesson. ??? All I did was add a memorial with a very nice obituary. She has written to me twice after that and that was after I had immediately removed the obituary and transferred the memorial to her. Totally out of control individual!

So I'm not too sure about adding any more obituaries. I HATE getting "yelled" at.

Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

High Plains :)

Gladys & Leonard Hougen
After I entered Gladys and Leonards names in I found that you already had them in. I have added their children and some other info. What do we do now? I see that you are in Grand Forks, my home town is Larimore but have lived in MI since 66 and now I spend the winters in TX. Gladys was my cousin. LeRoy
