Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Mother of 2 boys and 2 girls and a grandma of 4 granddaughters and 3 grandsons.
I am a transplant from Michigan who graduated from L'anse Creuse High School in Mount Clemens Michigan 1966. I was the sixth child of Leonard Joseph Fleury and Florence Jean (Simpson) Fleury. I now live in Goodlettsville Tennessee, north of Nashville ,with a ridgerunner for a hubby, who I met when he was in the Air Force at Selfridge Air Force Base in 1967, and now he is retired from Dupont.
Email me if there is anything that needs to be made right on my inputs.
'Blackeyedpeas' is the nicname that was given to me by my Father, Leonard Joseph Fleury, when I was a little girl, because my eyes are brown. My hubby has a nicname he had from where he retired from Dupont, it is called 'Cornbread'.

My dad also gave me another nicname , it is Kickkee, I have been doing Ancestry research on Surnames of Fleury, Bilbrey, Reno, also spelled Renaud, Simpson, Warner, Anstett, Worley, Howard, Nantais, Coker.
My sister Irene (Fleury) Young passed away July 7, 2006 if you leave a flower or a gift on her interment it would be very appreciated,you can find it as an off shoot of my Mom's interment, Florence Jean (Simpson) Fleury.
If there are any who put gifs and flowers on my family or friends interments which are mostly in my Sponserships, I thank you all so very much, and I will also try to do the same for your loved ones.
I also look for duplicates in the cemeteries I put flowers in and I will tell the members about them so they can be deleted .
So if anyone finds duplicates on my interments please let me know.

I use to take request pictures at a few Cemeterys near us, National Cemetery,Forest Lawn, and a few others . There are other members who take up pic requests in this area also .
I really do hope someone takes up the requests you made in Spring Hill and the others .

if I have any interments that I have made in my profile as to date and you see any that may be your family ,please let me know so that I can transfer them to you.
Keep up the good work you and yours do in findagrave .
I have completed my treatments for Radiation and Chemo in this month of Jan 2015. But I will not be helping with pics anymore.

For the familys of any interments in Forest Lawn Cemetery here in Goodlettesville TN where I sometimes I did take requests, the cemetery has a way to have real flowers placed on interments for special occasions 3 times a year for a fee , and if anyone is interested they may call the Forest Lawn office to set it up.

I was informed by the Ladies who run the office in The National Cemetery here in Madison Tennessee that the Kiosk outside the office has the same records in it as the office records have inside , so that means , if the name isnt on the Kiosk then the soldiers are not in this Cemetery. And also there are quite a few unknowns headstones that are interred in the National from the Civil War.

Spring Hill Cemetery is a strict cemetery,I have had problems with office people when I did ask for the locations as a request pic taker , They say only family of interred people there may ask for locations. So if you need a location call office at Spring Hill Cemetery 1-615-865-1101 then say you are family related. Ask for Section#, plot location#, plot#, and grave #. You may need to provide dates. Then add information to the photo request . And if they find the location in the office for you ,ask them to help show whoever comes in for it to go out and help look ,or make a copy of the location on a map , because sometimes it is hard for the pic taker to locate by just the direction itself , whereas the office people may be able to go directly to the grave with them . But make sure you specify someone will come into their offices and you need a family services person to show them where the interment is ,otherwise they may not help.

My photos are for public use and permission to use them are not needed. And your very welcome.

Thanks Kathleen for finding her. This is the long lost great aunt that I have been looking for. Glad to have finally found her. Noticed she is in the same cemetery as one of her brothers and her parents. Would there be any way to possibly locate a spouse for her in the same area where she is buried? The "B" would stand for Box as that was her maiden name. You have taken photos for me before so would be greatly appreciated if you can find anything for me.

Thank you so much for adding this obituary and memorial for my 1st cousin Lillian Balmes! I have been working for the last 2 year to connect these children with their mother Mary Tormey (my grandfathers sister) who moved from Pennsylvania to Michigan, but haven't been able to add much!
Today I found 2 marriage certificates that confirm all the other info I have on Mary's children!!! So Thank you thank you!

Every little bit helps and I'm so grateful to people like you that take the time to add a little extra to these already beautiful memorials.

I'd like to add a photo of Lillian as a child if that would be okay with you?

Thank you again!

Hello Kathleen,

Thank you for creating a memorial for my grandmother, Eleanor Stolzenfeld (# 18065179). Today would have been her 100th birthday. Is she related to you as well? If not, I would very much appreciate a transfer. Thank you so much for your wonderful work and I hope you are healing well.

Thanks so much,
