Find a Grave ID


My name is Valarie. Youngest child of Ray E. McNeal & Dorothy F. Couch McNeal. I am married to Terrence Smith. No children. My fascination of visiting cemeteries started at a very young age. My dad passed away when I was 3 and we visited him quite often. I love seeking out old cemeteries and seeing the very old graves. My friend took me to Hollywood a few years ago and showed me many celebrity gravesites. Well that set fire to my love for visiting and paying homage to them. Respectfully of course. I have a couple hundred pics of their headstones.

My brother Larry McNeal was a big Find A Grave contributor prior to his death. Most of them are family some from very small cemeteries in the midwest. He contributed and managed almost 3,000 memorials which I took over upon his death. His memorial is the only one that I have done.

I have enjoyed talking to fellow gravers and sharing and updating information on the memorials.
