Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born May 1, 1959, in Mt Clemons, Michigan.

My Parents;
Donald Oberlin
Myrtle Oliver Oberlin

On February 14 1998 I married Michael Smarr, my childhood sweetheart. He has been my soulmate and has been with me through the Great and the Hard times, ever by my side.

In Oct 2006 I was diagnosed with terminal Breast Cancer and told I had two years to live.

In 2007 my son got married, and they have given us two of the most precious granddaughters.

In 2010 my sister Carol Oberlin Fortin and I found we both enjoyed geneology, so we started putting our family up on Find A Grave.

Now my Granddaughters will have a permenant record of their family.

The Lord has truely Bessed Me. It is now June 2012, It has been a struggle but worth every minute.

As we travel we find and enter cemeteries, so if I have your family member, no matter how far up the tree, please ask for the memorial, and if its not our family I would be honored to transfer it to you.

May God Bless you, Janice

My memorial:

Horace Kight
I thought Horace (grandfather) and Clare, where married in the 50's. Because Candace was born in 1955. Of course I never met her either. My parents where married May 1964.

RE: Athaiss Marquis
Not necessarily. We still have about 10% of the cemetery to photograph. I would agree that it would be odd for her to be somewhere else, but stranger things have happened. Leave the request open, as you can see, for some strange reason we have a lot of open requests.

Horace Kight
Horace Kight 1911 - 1980, was my Grandfather. My Dad's father. Dad was born Oct 24, 1931 in Jeff Davis County, Ga.
Passed on May 3, 2009. Dad's Birth name was Archibald Horace Kight, Later changed to Horace Joseph Howe when he moved to Canada in 1959. Any information on Horace would be great, photo's etc, as I don't know what he looked like.
My email is:
Thank you

RE: Wolfe Family
Hi Janice, I did receive the bios that you sent. I have moved them to files and got stopped on what I was doing. Will try to cut and paste soon. For some reason I have trouble doing that with find a grave. If I can't get it right I will contact you.

Memorial #133876940
Dear Mrs. Smarr,

Thank you for creating this memorial! Wallace is my uncle. I was hoping you could transfer ownership of his memorial to me, as I actively research my family history, and would like to update the information, and add a bio for his memorial.

Again, thank you so much, and God bless you!
