Bio and Links
Bio Photo What began as a way to memorialize only members of my family has turned into something larger and seemingly open-ended. Most of my memorials are not for my relatives.

I have helped to inventory and photograph three cemeteries in their entirety: East Batavia Cemetery in Batavia, Illinois, Calvary Cemetery and Oakwood Cemetery in West Chicago, Illinois. I also have done extensive work in Marywood Cemetery in Aurora, Illinois, West Batavia Cemetery in Batavia, Illinois, Glen Oak Cemetery in West Chicago, Illinois, and Saint John the Baptist Cemetery in Winfield, Illinois.

I have tried to add as much information as is readily available. I will gladly make corrections or add information. I try to process requests as quickly as possible, but please allow the recommended time. Please do not use flowers for these purposes. Doing so is against FindAGrave guidelines. Flowers are to be tokens of respect; flowers left for any other purpose will be reported.

Feel free to use any of my photographs for non-commercial use, but please give credit where credit is due.

Thank you to those who have added photographs and flowers to my memorials. They are appreciated. Please add appropriate photographs to any of my memorials, and I would very much like to know that you have done so. I would like to see the photographs myself.

Out-of-guidelines transfer requests will be evaluated individually. Please do not take me to task if I do not transfer when such a request is made. Inappropriate or abusive comments will be reported.

"The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it."

RE: Photo Requests
I am glad I could help. Sorry the quality is not very good. The "Heaven" level is quite high and was hard to photograph. I wasn't very happy with the end results, but its over 2 hours away from where I live and I wanted you to have something at least.

Nina Needels memorial
Thank you so much for adding Nina Needels's memorial. I had been trying to find her for some time. I am finally able to connect her to her parents and children!

Thanks for noticing my mistake in the birth place. I created it real quick on lunch break and put where Uncle Tom was living at the time of his death.

Thank you so very much for this grave location. I hope to visit her grave as soon as the weather is warm enough for riding! It will be ever so much easier to locate now that you have supplied the Plot information. You are so very kind and generous, and I am so appreciative.
Married a Runyan descendent.

Thanks for pointing this out; my suspicion is that it is one person, with 2 errors - the death date on the gravestone, and the burial place on the death certificate. It's not entirely impossible that there were 2 couples with similar names, though. I don't believe I found her obit either.
