Bio and Links
Bio Photo Find A Grave business:

Please submit a summary of obituary information to the memorials I manage. I take great care not to include names of living relatives (unless I know them personally and have their permission). If you find any that aren't in keeping with this,let me know. There are some I've inherited and haven't double checked every single one.

I'll transfer most any memorial you wish, just ask. If I don't want to transfer, I'll let you know why. You'll find I'm fairly eager to transfer folks I don't know.

If you see anything that needs changing or updating, click on the "edit" tab at the top right of the memorial and type in the information in the areas given.

*If you find a memorial I manage that is DUPLICATED, please click on the edit tab and fill out the last line on the form.

*I've inherited some which may have been duplicated --I can't just delete those, I have to contact FAG to delete them, so I will mark such as "duplicates" until they are deleted.

*If you are a close family member who prefers to not have a memorial or photo on FAG, and it is one I manage, please contact me and I will remove the memorial. If I did not create it originally, I have to go through FAG. If I did not take the photo I cannot delete it, even if it is on a memorial I manage. There are a few cases where memorials I've created from markers have been removed at relatives' request.

STORIES.....Because I love stories....I love Find A Grave. So full of LIFE stories! What's yours?
Helen Coon is my mother,
Clifford Bitikofer my father-in-law,
My nephew Nathan died at age 14.
For a story of love, adventure and faith, see:Sarah Andersson and Oskar "Mulundu Weta" Andersson .
A different kind of love story between Sarah Wiens (my great-aunt) and Helmut Stainer. Unknown Baby, "born 1935, buried 1965".
Cora Coon;
Hugh Coon;
Catherine Neufeld ;
John T. Neufeld ;
Vicky Goertzen a long time and very dear friend who died of diabetes.
"Wally" our dog who died on Good Friday;
Marchant child One of six children in the same family, who died within a 2 week period.



I have interests in art, photography, history, and writing. My husband and I have two college aged sons. My husband is a teacher, and I am a substitute teacher with fairly full-time employment. I hit the cemeteries when school is out, though!

I am adjusting to having my "baby" away at college, far from home for the first time.
I believe in and try to follow Jesus every day and in every aspect. The Kingdom coming on earth begins with those who are faithful doing the will of God through Christ in all we say or do on this earth and in this life, not because of eternal reward, but because the world needs us and the message of ultimate redemption of all Creation. Peace on earth, good will to all.

Thanks and blessings to everyone who works so hard to make Find A Grave so awesome! Appreciation as well to those who put the flowers all around!

I just stopped by to say "Hi". I noticed your name "GeekyGraveGirl" and I love it so I thought I would check your page and your story.

Best Wishes and Merry Christmas! If I can ever be of any help, let me know. I am always happy to help.

RE: Heaston Edits in Sunset Cemetery, Manhattan KS
No, I'm not related, was working on Heaston's in Geary Cemetery. It is sad, I wanna give them a name just to make me feel that they are at peace.

RE: Anna Lee Area
Thank you so much, GeekyGraveGirl! This settles the question of whether my aunt's middle name was Lee or Leigh (her father's first name was Leigh, so I always assumed it was the latter).

RE: ... and the people related to the ones you've edited....
Thanks! I have no idea who Tressie Caroline Strand is, though. I don't think she is connected with our family, if you'd like to take her back. I'm also happy to keep her connected with my name... if somebody comes along that can make a family connection, then I'd find out!

RE: Olive Strand edit
Sure -- I'm not sure how that works, but I bet you do!
