Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in Dearborn, Michigan, and graduated from Edsel Ford High School in 1981. I married my second husband, Steve in 1989. We now live in a suburb of Detroit with our three dogs: Lucy, Desi, and Rosie.

As you can see, I have sponsored many memorials here. I do this first, to help support this free website. Second, to honor this person and have a lasting connection to them. And third, so that people can later add more photos to the memorial. Please do not transfer memorials to me, unless I have requested that. I would much rather the memorial be transferred to a family member or friend of the deceased.

I have set up memorial pages for my Dad, Henry T. Ryan, and my best friend, Sandra Kay Botts. I have made a virtual cemetery for them together. My Dad passed away in 2001 and Sandy passed away in 2006.

I have also created memorial pages for Sandy's dogs and mine. I made a virtual cemetery for them titled, "My Beloved Dogs." Four of the dogs, listed with the last name "Botts", are Sandy's dogs. The other nine dogs listed are my beloved dogs.

I have also made a virtual cemetery for Dean Martin and his family. I sponsered both his parent's memorial pages, his brother William and his wife, Josephine, and also Dean's daughter, Claudia.

I have also made a virtual cemetery for Desi Arnaz and his family. I have also sponsored his second wife Edith's memorial page. I am a fan of Desi Arnaz and named my black poodle, "Desi", in honor of him. Desidario is his formal name, the actor and my dog.

I love our country and being an American. I have a lot of respect for our Veterans, past and present. I have created a virtual cemetery for Veterans. Please visit some of these Veterans who have been an important part of our country's freedom.

Happy Memorial Day

I've made a little Memorial Day virtual flower in honor of your father. It's the only one I'm making for others this year. I wish I could make one for everyone here at Find A Grave, but sometimes life doesn't go the way you wish. Anyways, it's a small thanks letting me know about the news clip with Mr. Easterbrook. Have a safe and happy Memorial holiday!

RE: Ashley Easterbrook
Thanks you for the heads-up! Saw it on the news, Mr. Easterbrook is a great motivational speaker, and so glad the word about drunk driving is getting the attention from the local media outlets. Especially since high school/college kids are getting out of school for the summer, and also it's prom and wedding season.

I've left an Angel Day token Sandra. Sorry, not personalized. Lately, things haven't worked out so well, I'm not here as much, as I'd like.

Hope all is good for you!

RE: Your Dad's Angel Day
I have never been to Michigan. My grandson is a Michigan fan even though we live in Ohio where most everybody wears Ohio State shirts. He went to Michigan last month with his mom for a visit. The weather here today was great for the cookout. We had lots of laughs. My dad always yelled 18 months Korea when he wanted us to do something. I think the war really had an impact on him. It was nice talking to you and thanks again for taking time to do all that you do for the veterans.

RE: Your Dad's Angel Day
Thank you Renee for caring and sending my dad tokens. My dad was a Korean War vet, he loved to tell stories. I am hoping the rain stays away from our cookout but we do have shelter if need be. Thanks again for your kindness.
