Bio Photo I have been receiving in excess of 30 e-mails a day, so if I do not get back to you in a timely manner, please have a little patience. Thank you!


...Once upon a time I walked across this hard, cold earth, and when I reached the end of my journey I looked back and beheld that the winds of time had erased all signs that I was ever here. But if you look closely, you will see an indentation here and a groove there, and if we are both very lucky you will find a foot print. And if you will look and find the signs of my passing, and remember me for a day or a season, I will be grateful.

RE: Jessica M. Woods #150881752
Here is a copy of her obituary:
PERU Jessica M. Woods, 25, of Peru, passed away Thursday, Aug. 13.

A funeral ceremony will be at 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 22, at Ottawa Funeral Home with the Rev. Duane Kaufman officiating. Visitation will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 21, Ottawa Funeral Home. Burial will be in Riverview Cemetery.

Jessica was born Jan. 10, 1990, in Ottawa, to Robert and Wendy (Purkes) Woods.

She was a very spunky girl and was full of life. She loved to watch the Chicago Bears. Her kids, family and friends meant the world to her.

She is survived by her mother, Wendy Woods; two children, Stella Cox and Haiden Woods; two siblings, Michael (Liz Johnson) Richardson and Laura (Jarrett Todd) Richardson; four nieces, Riley and Sheala Richardson and Allie and Lucy Todd; twin nieces or nephews due in December; and her second mom, Cheryl Seroka.

She was preceded in death by father, Robert Woods; her aunt, Rhonda Higgins; and her cousin, Jason Higgins.

Memorials may be directed to her family.

Hi Kurt; I contacted a family member and found the byers are buried in Mountain View Cemetery Calgary. Could you delete them from Welwyn and put them in Mountain view. Thanks again Dean

You have her passing date as Aug. 14, 2015, not 2915 as I had noted earlier. Her passing date is Aug. 14, 2015. Are you sure she will be buried in Riverview Cemetery? There is also a Riverview Cemetery in Marseilles.

Albert D. Turner, Sr. #95868272
Re: Alfred D Turner, Sr. - When reading the bio in his memorial, it has that he was to be cremated at Roselawn Memorial Park but no mention where the cremains would be buried.

So "Why make a memorial for him in Roselawn Memorial Park when it states he is only being cremated there"? If checked with Roselawn, the funeral home or his family to confirm the burial location, then if location has been found, I would think it should be noted in the bio since not in the obituary you posted in the bio.

Note: Roselawn Memorial Park has a crematory and not all cremations are buried in Roselawn.

Walter and Pauline Turner

You have BURIAL UNKNOWN memorials made for Walter, Pauline, Walter Jr. and Halbert Turner and there are memorials for them in Woodland Cemetery with several having marker pictures so I suggest you delete your BURIAL UNKNOWNS.

Paul S Turner #97204855

I am still making memorials from the actual Woodland cemetery burial records and it is difficult to remember to check if a memorial has been made for each and every one so some do slip by me.

I have been informed that I have a duplicate memorial made for Paul S. Turner in Woodland cemetery. I find you have one for him as BURIAL UNKNOWN so I suggest you delete.
