Bio and Links
Bio Photo I retired Dec. 2010 after 33 years as a dental office receptionist & office manager. I have just recently become interested in genealogy and have a lot of catching up to do.

I find it fascinating to visit cemeteries and view the personal history that each stone represents. Also, I have met such nice people through these efforts.

Family names I am interested in are Courtney, Iaiser, Stewart, Brown, Miller, Cook and Sallee in Missouri.
Hiatt, Purvis, Guffey, and Inskeep in Iowa.

Anyone may use any photos I have posted on Find A Grave for their own research purposes as long as I am credited.

Alva Reeves
Do you mind if I use your photo for the tombstone of Alva Miller Reeves on Find A Grave? It will only be used for my Ancestry and Family Search accounts. Thank you so much.

RE: Roy & Gladys Williams
Thanks Patty, hope to meet you, too. Gladys was my neighbor for many years growing up. Never knew how her husband died until I say his death certificate. So sad. Best wishes.

RE: Parents to Edward Brown Stewart
Yes! Lois Foutch is my husbands grandmother. We live in Idaho with our four girls. We are making a trip over to see Lois in MO this summer. Maybe then, I can get some more information from family members!

Family photo
I just thought I should let you know that some family photos you have added to memorials have been added using the incorrect icon. The photo of Allen LaVaughn Cook (mem. #43513122) was added using the "grave photo icon" so when his name appears in a list the portrait icon does not show up. You need to delete the photo and resubmitt it using the portrait icon. If you don't know where to find this icon just go to where you add photos and click on the little arrow that points down, following where it says grave photo, and there will be a list of other types of photos you can add. Just trying to help get photos added correctly. Have a nice day, Marla M. from MO.

RE: Zelma Cook 97929613
Please delete your memorial since it was a duplicate. Also would you send me a transfer request using the Edit Tab on her memorial! I am pretty busy and this makes it so much easier for me to make a transfer. Thanks, Marla M. from MO.
