Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in 1951, in Phoenix, AZ. I have been researching my family history since 1971. I have ten children and 22 grandchildren. We now live in Mesa, AZ.

I've always loved cemeteries! There is such wonderful information on this website. I would be glad to help someone else in their search.

While researching some of my family history on this site, I found that someone had taken the time to add photos of obituaries to many of my relatives' memorials. This thoughtful act touched me. I have decided that to repay their kindness - I tried adding memorials for those found in online obituaries for the Arizona Republic, The East Valley Tribune, and the Apache Junction Gold Canyon News, but soon discovered that someone else was duplicating my entries! I then went to a nearby cemetery and took photos of some name plates and created memorials for them. I hope to continue to add memorials to this site.

If you are related to someone whose memorial I have created - I will be happy to transfer it to you - just let me know. If you find any error or omission in a memorial which I have entered, use the edit tab or contact me! Since I may only have had the obituary or the gravestone to go by, many times I do not have all of the information. If you have further information to add to a memorial, I will be happy to make changes.

RE: Thank You!
Martha Irene Wilson 1900-1916 #144679384 was buried next to Robert and had the same type of marker so I thought that she might be his sister.

Blanche Fretz Ritter
Hello, my name is Hannah Cuellar. Blanche Ritter is my great grandmother on my mothers side. Her first husband's name was Charles Boyles who passed in Pennsylvania in 1945. Her son, my grandfather, is Joel Lee Boyles. She met her second husband, Raymond Ritter, either in Pennsylvania or Arizona. Not sure. What I am about is that her name was never Fretz.

Her maiden name was Hunsberger. Not sure where Fretz came from, but all the other info you have is correct(8 July 1912 to Feb 1985). I have never been able to figure out her date of passing. I know that her obituary was printed in paper on Feb 19th. So within a week prior.

Would you remove Fretz from her grave page? What do you need from me to do so?

Thank you so much. Hannah C.

RE: Thank You!
You are most welcome. There were flowers in the urn but I had to remove it as the flowers were casting shadows.

RE: Thank You!
You're welcome. The mortuary list McBride, Darnell, and Alfred as names associated with Eva. That should give you a start in figuring out who she was. York county also has a large index of marriages listed on Family Search.
