Bio and Links
Bio Photo Howdy hi! While you're here, I'd appreciate it if you'd leave a flower for my grandma, Lola June "Nan" Beckstead. She passed away in 2009, and things just haven't been quite the same since then.

My Dad passed away on August 15. He and my mom divorced when I was young, and I didn't get to know him as well as I would've liked, but I still talked to him often and visited when I could. Here's his memorial, and I'd appreciate any flowers :-). Christopher Alaric Montgomery

I got into Find A Grave after Nan passed away. There was some animosity within my family, and as a result, she never had an obituary in the paper and she was never interred with Grandpa like she wanted. I felt like everyone was trying to forget my Nanny. A couple years after her passing I made her a memorial on Find A Grave so I could have somewhere to go to remember her, and let everyone know what a great person she was.

After I made her memorial I made one for my grandpa, and my great-grandparents, and eventually I started taking pictures at local cemeteries and making memorials for people I didn't even know. I enjoy the research aspect, but most importantly I don't want anyone to be forgotten, just like I made sure Nan wasn't.

When I'm not out graving I'm an avid crocheter and crazy cat lady, and I'm rather fond of sitting around playing video games instead of getting a haircut and/or a real job. I've also recently taken up fishkeeping.

I spent the first 19 years of my life in Reno, Nevada, but on July 21, 2015 I packed up my 35 pets and moved to Phoenix, Arizona to pursue a degree in Mortuary Science at Mesa Community College.

Most of my ancestors hail from Utah. My family tree includes the following surnames: Beckstead, Butterfield, Channing, Childs, Cowdell, Dody, Haddenham, Jacobsen, Jenkins, Johnson, Montgomery, Reed, and Thompson.

I will transfer any of my memorials to anyone that requests them (except, of course, my grandparents, great-grandparents, and Dad). Whether it's out of guidelines or in bulk, for whatever reason - you have a connection to someone, you're researching the family, you walked their dog once in 1978 - you are welcome to manage. Also feel free to use my photos, there is no need to ask permission or credit me.

If you're not a member of Find A Grave but would like me to make corrections to a memorial, feel free to send me an email! Make sure to include either a link to the memorial(s) you want corrected, or the memorial number.

If I haven't responded to your correction/email in 3-4 days, send me a message here or send me another email! Sometimes old-style corrections get lost in the mass of "Edit Processed" emails, or I just flat-out forget (I have a bad habit of reading emails at 3 am, marking them as read, then going to sleep and accidentally forgetting about them, lol).

I left flowers for your family.
Your Nan looks adorable!
Thank You so much for your kindness, You did a beautiful job on her Memorial. Thank You on behalf of the family.
Sad side note Rita's son-in-law is in Hospice and doesn't have much time left before he leaves to be with his Loving wife Loretta Lewis Snow. He is in AZ and will be sent home to rest in Reno.
Thank You Again,

Holcomb Family Of Reno, Nevada
Thank you so much for adding Budd and Mabel Holcomb to findagrave! They were the parents of a friend of mine. Her name is Marian Holcomb Rae of Fairborn,Ohio. She passed in 2002 and I just now put her into findagrave. I will link her to her parents. I agree with you completely that findagrave is the best place to remember our friends and family!!! I also agree with you that no home is complete without a cat or two! (We are currently upto five!) Thanks, again, Sally

Hi My F.A.Grave Friend,

My dear Peaches passed on February 3. It was a super shock....come home from work and she wasn't at the gates with our 2 boy dogs....we found her in the yard passed on. She was on death row in 2007 when we adopted her....she looked as if she just had a heart attack playing and fell over. I cried for was our anniversary weekend as well, and I was so sad. However, I was so thankful that she was at home surrounded by her friends when she passed on! Please sign her page if you can. She's under 'Peaches Carlyne 'Peachy Fee Fee' Collier".

Yes, I would love it if you would transfer Art to me. He had been a mystery man for most of his Grandson John Pearson's life. Thank you for all you do. Debby

RE: Prymer
You are too sweet and "THANK YOU!"! I will be posting to yours as well. If you can, and it's not too much to ask, could you please sign for Dayko the Dog, Citation the Horse and Northern Dancer? Dayko was a hero dog who passed on the job, and the other horses are Kentucky Derby Winners that I created memorials for. Oh! I did one for Cecil the Lion as well, and F.A.G. now controls it, but you can sign his as well. Thanks you and God bless you!!
