Bio and Links
Bio Photo In 2006 I googled my mother's name and found her on Find a Grave--this was a joyful day for me. Of course, I had to find everyone else! It took awhile after joining (initially to place 'flowers' on their memorials) before really understanding enough to make memorials myself. This I began in 2011, starting with my darling husband. Was involved as a bereavement facilitator for my church (right after Ken's death) - am very aware of the needs of the grieving to tribute their loved ones. Find a Grave is a wonderful place to do just that. Am also quite experienced in the pain which insensitive/unthinking people can inflict. (Am presently not actively facilitating--although I still find myself helping with grief issues any where I happen to be.)

My direct family lines are through Fonnesbeck, Duval, Gerbet, and Bissegger families.

My husband's direct family lines are Pitcher, Jorgensen, Plowman, and Barrett.

And many, many more before!

However, I am fascinated by all.

Have found several loved ones and friends through findagrave and am thoroughly hooked on helping to make all of our searches more satisfying, productive, educational and just plain fun!

husband's memorial
You are so welcome Pat, I just happened on his site when looking at Lake Hills interments - my first young husband is buried there with many of his family & then I followed Ken's father's link and noticed the Smithfield connection. Many of my ancestors settled there.

I also have a lot of Barrett ancestors, so check my Barrett entries and see if any are in your lines - It is so nice to see these puzzle pieces come together!
Cheers~ Shirleen

I added his obituary to his memorial. I want all my memorials to find their family, so if you are his family, please let me know if you would like it transferred to you! Thanks!

RE: Ray and Margrethe
Thank you for connecting Uncle Ray with the rest of his family. Since they never had children and since my Dad was the baby brother, they kind of adopted all of my siblings as theirs and they came for Thanksgiving and Christmas and Sunday dinners frequently. Great memories! That's completely fine if you keep Uncle Ray, you had him first . Thanks again for all of your work on these memorials, you do a fine job. I'm just starting to submit info.
