Bio and Links
Bio Photo "Memories of You" was a pop song published in 1930 (lyrics by Andy Razaf; music by Eubie Blake). It was best popularized by the incomparable Benny Goodman and his orchestra. My Dad used to practice it at home on his clarinet when I was a kid, though I never knew what it was called back then, and didn't know the lyrics. Now every time I hear that tune, it brings back my memories of those happy days, and memories of my father and other loved ones gone ahead.

It's been said that no one is finally dead until he is forgotten. Another thought along these lines runs: You are not really dead until after your name is spoken aloud on earth for the last time.

At every gravesite, no matter how old, how poorly marked, how long forgotten, there lies the memory of a precious life lived with a beginning, a middle, an end, and a story worth telling and remembering. Each tombstone marks a significant day of human sorrow. And around most every tombstone was once gathered the unbreakable force of love.

Findagrave and its volunteers are here to respect those memories and to help keep those individual stories and names alive, whenever possible. Each memorial made here is for one more person who is gone but not forgotten.


Turn Again To Life
by Mary Lee Hall

If I should die and leave you here awhile
be not like others sore undone,
who keep long vigil by the silent dust.
For my sake turn again to life and smile,
nerving thy heart and trembling hand
to do something to comfort others than mine.
Complete these dear unfinished tasks of mine
and I perchance may therein comfort you.

I will transfer the Gossman's to you since I can't add the obituary you sent without violating two of the site rules and regulations. You will need to rewrite the key elements of the obituary and then you can add that as a biography without risking getting into trouble for violating the site rules.

Thanks for all the info! I have updated all those Obrist profiles. I had a wonderful visit to Woodlawn 3 years ago with my aunt, then 94, who regaled me with family tales as we visited every Obrist grave. We laughed so much during that long afternoon - sadly she is now passed on herself (and buried in Woodlawn). She would be happy to know these virtual files are filling up with information.

John Obrist
Hi - I was planning to transfer John to another relative once he was on find-a-grave; John's niece, Bernice Obrist, was my aunt by marriage. Please let me know how you are related and if I should transfer to you or to his great nephew.

I found his gravesite. If you can add him (death date 9/21/1979) he is in Section L 80-6. Just do a photo request once he's added and I'll upload the pic asap ;)

Nathan Medley is not buried in this cemetery. I spoke to the gentleman who has the cemetery records and he did not find a burial.
