Bio and Links

Lives are commemorated - deaths are
Recorded - families are reunited -
Memories are made tangible - and love is
Undisguised. This is a cemetery

Communities accord respect, families
Bestow reverence, historians seek
Information and our heritage is thereby

Testimonies of devotion, pride and
Remembrance are carved in stone to pay
Warm tribute to accomplishments and to
The life - not death - of a loved one.
The cemetery is homeland for family
Memorials that are a sustaining source of
Comfort to the living.

A cemetery is a history of people - a
Perpetual record of yesterday and a
Sanctuary of peace and quiet today. A
Cemetery exists because every life is worth
Loving and remembering - always.

Floyd Jeremiah Rice
This is a bit of a strange one. Riverview Abbey's records indicate that his cremains are interred in Carnation Corridor, South Wall, Urn Section, Tier 5, along with those of James and Salome Lawrence. As the photo shows, there is no visible urn in the niche. Maybe his cremains were physically placed into one of the Lawrence urns. Who knows?

To your knowledge, was Floyd Rice related to James and Salome Lawrence? This would certainly explain why his ashes are interred with them.

I hope this helps. One suggestion: you could call Riverview Abbey and ask for the staff to reconfirm this information. If it's in error, let me know and I'll take down the picture.

Good luck.

RE: Elma Burns
I believe you are correct with St. Mary's Cemetery. After reading about the added parishes thru the years (, I would assume she attended St. Joseph's Parish, but her family is buried at St. Mary's Cemetery. In 1900, there was a church called Ferndale Catholic Church. Is it still there? Or has the name been changed? The Roman Catholics have a history of keeping excellent records.

Her husband John Thomas Gray b. 12 Aug. 1879, died Feb. 10, 1942 should be in the same cemetery.
Did you happen to find a marker for him?

Christy thank you thank you for the transfers. I appreciate your work so much, and having done some similar work at a cemetary near my home I know how rewarding it is. It's literally the opposite of morbid, it is a joyeous thing to keep the memory of ancestors alive. Thank you again. If I may ever repay the lovely gesture in some way it would be my honor and pleasure. Most sincerely, JAX, a fellow "grave walker"
