Bio and Links
Bio Photo We gladly transfer memorials to family and friends and are happy to share photos with family members for personal, non-commercial use.

Please let us know of any corrections, additional information or transfer requests by using the options under the [Edit] tab located in the top right corner of each memorial page.

Most edits can be done via their own link.
Per the FAQs, please use the sixth option for transfer requests.

Please read the FAQs and the Terms of Service to find out what can and cannot be added to memorials.

Three members asked if we would manage the memorials they created in the Odd Fellows Cemetery and Masonic Memorial Park in Tumwater, WA., and Forest Memorial in Olympia, WA. That accounts for the difference in our added and managed numbers.

We are not related to anyone in these three cemeteries-just maintaining the memorials.

Amanda and Vern Smith
Dear Elaine and Bill,

I am doing some searching in my family tree and have an Everett LaVern Smith 1886-1976, #104019520 he had a wife named as Hilma Amanda Ogren, not linked to his memorial, and I found your memorial #104019534 for Amanda Smith with a Vern on the same headstone, the year of birth for Vern matches (same cemetery too)
Can you look at other headstones the next time you go to this cemetery for his siblings and parents. I think this is the couple I'm looking for.

Would you have any additional info on this Amanda Smith aka Hilma Amanda Ogren ?

Sorry about the edit error. This site is getting so slow with trying to download massive commercials and ads. From the time I open a page here and am finally able to enter information, I play a game of solitaire. Sometimes have to refresh the page a couple times to get it to respond. Get all the information entered and the page refreshes itself and I get to start all over.
So, I will attempt to resend correct edit and I really appreciate your calling this to my attention. Roy

Will do edits. The B is for Beatrice.

James Benesh correction
The newspaper name and date for James Benesh's obituary I provided is wrong. It should read The Daily Olympian, Tuesday, August 7, 1945.

Sorry for the mistake.
