Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born at Travis AFB in Fairfield, California. My father was born in Iowa and my mother in Texas. I've now lived in both states. Currently in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I'm married with two grown sons and one granddaughter.

I'm an eleven year breast cancer survivor and volunteer through the American Cancer Society as a Reach to Recovery advocate. It is my hope through education and research there will someday be a cure for all cancers. Until then, I will continue to be a volunteer, support those who have been diagnosed, and honor survivors.

In November 2010 I retired. It was my mother-in-law who peaked my interest in genealogy. I'm currently seeking information for the Bahlmanns, Malzahns, Hagedorns and Bremers from Germany and Bremer/Chickasaw Counties in Iowa; Banks, Taylor, Jones, Reynolds, Fanning, Roberson and Elliott families from Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, South Carolina, and Hunt County Texas.

My interests are genealogy, photography, gardening, NASCAR, football (although I live in Cowboy country I'm still a die hard Viking fan), baseball, and traveling. The thing I enjoy most is spending time with my precious granddaughter. My favorite quote "Happiness is wanting what you have".

Please feel free to use any of the photos I've posted on my memorials. Contact me for any corrections or transfers.

RE: Bernita Grace Bannister Heine
I put the photo up. Strange how it works. After all these years I can still hear her raspy voice. Great little gal. Good memories.

Bernita Grace Bannister Heine
Hello, I have put up a photo of Bernita's stone and it reads 1915 -1987 and I am wondering if it is correct as your dates show 1983. I knew her but it hass been a long time since she passed and I forget the date. I'll have to dig butI think i still have a photo of her in a santa outfit.

Let me know your thoughts on the date.

Elziabeth Blume #34710842
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sending me the obit for my great-aunt, she was the sister of my Grandpa August Blume.
I have been doing some genealogy research pertaining to my Blume family for the past few years. My father was Walter Blume from Sumner, Iowa & my mother was Dorothy (Leaton) Blume, from Oelwein, Iowa. Since my parents divorced when I was just a year old I never had any contact with my father or his family. I know there's still "Blume" folks living in & around Sumner but since I now live in Henderson, Nevada, it's not possible for me to meet them in person to discuss our Blume family history.
If you find any other "Blume" obits that relate to any of the memorials I've created I would love to add them to my relatives pages.
Thanks again!
