RE: Flowers on memorials
Thank you for your reply.

Your flower with your note was removed. Sorry, I didn't noticed the date that it was posted but it was on the memorial and it should not have been there. I asked for it to be removed and it was.

No further problem.

Flowers on memorials
Please, if you have a concern about what is posted with a flower on a person's memorial, just click on the flower and then the option of "reporting abuse". Find A Grave will remove the concern for you. Negative remarks and bio information are not to be posted on a memorial with flowers. No need to get into with another member with a reply with another flower. That isn't how that the situation should be handled. Thanks for all you have done for Find A Grave.

RE: Valerie Percy burial
I found the interview to which you refer. Sharon was interviewed in 2006:

I visit her grave every time I go to Chicago, send flowers.

Valerie's cremains were buried in Oak Hill in 2008, two years after the interview.

I have found no reference to any burial in the Chicago area in 1966 in any newspaper. The only references were to the fact that she was cremated and the services were held at a church large enough for those expected. The services were Christian Science. The father of Sharon and Valerie lived in the District of Columbia until his death in 2011.

It is possible the cremains were split with burial in two places (not unusual), especially as the family home was in Cook County and the father resided in DC. He may have retained a portion of the cremains and had them buried as his health deteriorated. He died of complications from Alzheimer's disease.

The information comes from Oak Hill Cemetery records. The site is a cremation niche located on the Magnolia Path.

There is also an inscription - Beloved Sister and Daughter.
