Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am Nelda Beavers Curtis Fastenau. I enjoy walking cemeteries with my husband taking pictures for people. Just doing our part.
I think this is a wonderful site. I ran across it when working on genealogy. I was very touched and honored to find a tribute to my mom. Hoping I can do that for someone else.

My husband, Stan got me interested in Genealogy, and I have found it is very addicting.
A little bit about me: I was born 3-12-1957 in Elmhurst, IL. My parents were Olan and Leone Reynolds Beavers. I have two older brothers, James Beavers of Hector AR, and Tommy Beavers of Northlake, IL.
I graduated from West Leyden High School in Northlake, IL in 1975.
In 1979, I moved to Arkansas. Quite an adjustment for a city girl, but I loved it. My parents moved down a year later. They always wanted to retire in Arkansas, where they grew up.
I was married for 18 years and have a beautiful daughter Janice Curtis Lusk, who is also my best friend. I returned to school and got my AAS in Office Technology and in Accounting.
5 years after my divorce, I met the love of my soul mate, Stanley Fastenau and we married in 2006. We now live in Willard, MO.
My daughter married Clint Lusk, and the best part I got a grandson in the deal, Cain Lusk. In 2006, they had a beautiful baby girl, Eden Lusk...the light of my life. Something about hearing..."Hi Granny" & "Love You" melts the heart.
If I had two words to describe my life it would be "Fulfilled" and "Blessed".

If anyone has any corrections on anything I enter, or if you would like anything removed just email me. Glad to oblige.

Find A Grave Memorial# 31110108
I would like to, if I could take over my daughter's page her name is and was Brianna Kathleen Root that has this information at the bottom of her page "Created by: Nelda Fastenau
Record added: Nov 03, 2008
Find A Grave Memorial# 31110108"

It would mean the world to her dad and I if we can take over our baby girl's page.

Thank you,
Tina and James Root

Glad to hear from you
Hi Nel, good to hear from you. I stay off work for 2 years after the CDI staff created disaster. My Mother and Dad died during that time so, it was actually a blessing. I got to spend as much time as I wanted and needed with them. I am working for Tech now as an Administrative Assistant in the Biology Department and love it. So different from dealing with the back stabbing and *&&%^'s from CDI. Ha, I hear that there is lots of problems with Some of the **&*$%^# left at CDI, glad I'm out of there!

Thank you for bringing to our attention the incorrect spelling of Ms. Huffman's first name. Sometimes my husband is not to bright and forgets to double check his spelling. Thanks again and best regards to you.

Thank you.
Thank you very much for linking Finos Monroe Molloy's memorial to his wife Anne Ben (Latham) Molloy's memorial.

I used the edit and name button to add Anne's maiden name.

RE: Mary Francis Young Vest
I figured out where the confusion came from for me. The SSDI lists "last residence" which is NOT always place of death. Thank you so much for enlightening me on this. I have made the change on my family tree.
