Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired in Boise, Idaho. I have loved spending time in cemeteries since I was a little girl. Helping people by exploring cemeteries and photographing grave markers for them is a dream retirement activity for me.

I walk the rows taking random photos when I am in a cemetery, and add the photos or the entire memorial to Findagrave if they are not in. I particularly concentrate on veterans (and their spouses), infants and children. I feel the veterans have earned the right to go to the front of the line. And I feel that since the babies and the children got so little on earth, at least I can give them some electronic "life".

I am always happy to add any information to a memorial I manage. Just send it. I am also delighted to add obituaries; just make sure that I have the correct attribution to add so the paper's copyright is respected.

If you find any errors of fact, date, relationship, or spelling on any of my memorials, please let me know. As a former professional proofreader, I KNOW that no one is perfect all the time, including me. I will fix it.

I will transfer management of memorials in line with the Findagrave guidelines, which specify relatives in a direct line. Specifically, they say: "Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred." Please do not ask.

Sproat and Brower photos
Sue - Thank you for getting those photos. I create memorials based on information I can find on the internet. I always wonder if I got it right and then I see the physical evidence in the photo. Thank you for helping me complete the documentation of these individuals. I appreciate your help.

RE: thanks
Yes, I'm glad you found her. I didn't have the date of her death.

Haggett Family at Kohlerlawn
Thank you for getting clearer photos for these memorials. Unfortunately the ones people take from the Kohlerlawn website and post to Find a Grave are not always very clear.

Jack Canfield
Jack (59468499) MAY be the ex husband of my aunt Erma Lyda (40988922) They were divorced quite some time ago and I have been looking for him lately. I just started on this site so not sure how it works yet, so hopefully you can help.

RE: Guy Philamalee
Thanks! I've run into this before - if the memorial already includes a spousal link the automatic edit won't allow you to add parental links without first removing the spousal link. But other times it works fine. Go figure!

RE: Guy Philamalee
Thanks, for some reason the automated edit wouldn't work unless I deleted the link to Guy's wife Audrey which I didn't want to do.

No, I'm not related but the Philamalees & Vogts were friends of my family in Nance County, Nebr.

Here's a news item about Guy Philamalee's death (see columns 2 & 3):

I'll be sending additional edits for the Vogts too.
