Bio and Links
Bio Photo To all who read this bio or search my memorials please stop by and visit my dear Sister, my beloved Mother who's life was cut tragically short by ovarian cancer, my Granma and Granpa Blew, my Granma and Granpa Mollet, and my two best friends Randy and Joey. Thank You!


I believe family should be with family so if I have anyone under my tutelage that is related to you (and not related to me) I would be glad to transfer the memorial, just ask...POLITELY and I will consider it.

I am originally from Rome, Peoria, Illinois, USA and now reside in Seattle, King, Washington, USA. Navy veteran, USS Oriskany (CV-34), USS Dubuque (LPD 8), Helmsman, Deck Division. I love the greater northwest especially the climate, people, mountains, and the famous Public Market.

It is disrespectful not only to the military but to the service member to not put their rank in their name. You are to choose the closest to their rank if it is not listed. This is in the FAG rules. If you know it, list it.

It is also disrespectful to NOT link family members up. I have had someone tell me "they prefer NOT to link family members under their care" REALLY?? That's what this place is for!

I've had a lot of help along the way and I appreciate each and every one of you! If not for the first family tree I received from my aunt, I would never have started this 7+ year journey I'm on. Feel free to use any of the photos I have provided with the added caption "Photo provided by YankeeGraver". *hugs*

Thanks to all of you who place flowers on the above memorials. I very much appreciate it.

(I realize there are a lot of "possessive" people on here but really we can do without the stupid reasons or hateful emails.)

Leo John Mollet
I would like to pick up your photo request for Leo Mollet. I have found where his son is buried but there is no marker for him there. Monument Garden is about 2-3 acres in size and densely packed with monuments and markers. Sparkman Hillcrest (SH) will not provide burial locations to volunteers, citing privacy issues. Your cooperation is needed in order for requests to be filled. The volunteers will need you to call SH and request the location. Their phone number is 214-363-5401. Once you have the location, please email me and I will go and get your photo for you.

John Bender
I have looked all summer for John Bender's headstone. I believe there may not be one. I found his first wife Celestia's headstone. There are empty spots on either side of her. John's father is also nearby Celestia but not his wife Elizabeth. I also found John's second wife, Mary. She is buried by her son Joseph and an August Bender. No empty spaces are near their stones.

Catherine & Frances Knable
The only two Knables in the Elmwood cemetary book is Catherine with a C and the dates match so I added the photo and a Fannie that the stone was broken and no dates were visible probably under the repari. I believe this could be Frances. If you feel it is let me know and I will add the picture. It is right next to Catherine. I hope this helps.

I saw where you are a second cousin... I am in search of linking my Great Grandfather to his brother Leonard Kreiselmeier Find A Grave Memorial# 9680264 I am most certain that all of the different spellings of "Kreiselmeier" in the Zion Lutheran Cemetery are of kin. Have you worked out this bloodline?

RE: Helenek, Henrietta
Thanks...I don't go looking for initials with no period, but if I'm doing another edit for the memorial and notice it, I'll put it in to bring it in line with current Findagrave policy. I must admit that, as a former teacher, the lack of a period after an initial is difficult for me to pass by.

I'm going to the cemetery tuesday so well look to see if Otjlie Najt is buried there. I usually take the wife's headstone picture when I do the husband, but I missed it that time. Well let you know if I find her. Susie
