Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thank you for stopping by my profile page on findagrave.

I first started using findagrave to locate "famous" graves and quickly became more interested in the non famous side of findagrave. I love walking through cemeteries and photographing all the history they hold.
After the passing of my beloved grandmother Dorothy Johler Cruser I decided to start adding all of my family, which lead to my love of genealogy. I believe everyone should know where they came from and findagrave is an excellent way of leaving a place for future generations to search. I also enjoy strolling through all the other memorials on here and reading everyone's stories. I always leave a token when I visit as a way of letting their loved ones know they were visited and thought of.

On April 8,2014 I lost my best friend, my cousin Cindy Lou Corby Ritter, please stop by and leave her a token. Her loss has been extremely difficult on all of our family.

Please visit my very dear friend, who passed away on 1/10/11 Tiffany Michele Spangenburg.

Thank You to those of you who leave tokens on the memorials of my loved ones.

Eva Clark Becker Hamel
Hi Dorothy,
I was wondering if you are related to Eva Clark Becker Hamel, or if you know anyone who is related to her. I am the granddaughter of Levi Hamel, who she was married to from 1986 to 2001. I have a photo album from the 1950's that was her's, with pictures of her and John Becker, and some other people who are probably relatives of hers. When my grandfather died, my Aunt Jean got some of his photo albums. She died recently, and I took all her photo albums to scan, and discovered this photo album of Eva's. Please let me know if you know of relatives of hers that may be interested in this photo album.

Dear Dorothy:

Thank you for getting back to me on the Birds' memorials. I'm sorry things are so crazy around there. Hopefully, relaxation is coming your way soon.

Did you decide about Lottishey, William & Jacob? I'd still love to manage their memorial sites, if you're good with that. Please let me know.

Have a great day and . . .

Kind regards,

Anna Crayton Champion
Hi, Thanks for all your work done for Vaughn's Cem. I just found out that Anna Crayton Champion, wife of Raymond Champion is not buried in Vaughn's. The tombstone that was there has been replaced. If you are in the area, a new picture would be very appreciated. Thanks again. Sandy

Dear Dorothy:

Thank you so much for maintaining the below memorial sites! I appreciate the work you've already done, and I would like to continue on if possible. Would you please transfer management of these sites to me? As you can see, I've already sponsored these three memorials of my family members, and I would love to go further.

Thank you for your consideration.

Kind regards,

Thank you so much for posting the photograph of Joseph's stone.

It was a year ago, but F-A-G doesn't let the poor maintainer know when someone is kind enough to add to a memorial.
