Bio

I was born and raised in TX, met my Idahoan hubby in OH, we lived in VA, then settled in UT. We had 6 children in 8 years and my wonderful husband decided I needed a much needed break from the home one day a week. So his mother taught me to do genealogy. Thankfully I have loved recording my family history for over 47 years now.

Most of the memorials I manage are family (Schlunneger, Liechty, Kochendarfer, O'Bryan, Mize just to name a few), but it never hurts to ask to have a memorial transferred. Please include your relationship to the deceased and the memorial's ID# when you make your request by using the EDIT button on the memorial you wish to have transferred. If you are related in any way it will probably be yours, unless it has been promised to another (or my family), in which case, the closest related person will get it. In my opinion, the Golden Rule trumps the guidelines, and hoarding is just stingy and small. I firmly believe family should be with family. Thanks for understanding.

Mistakes happen, I'm famous for finger errors and welcome any additions or corrections. When asking for a memorial correction, addition, or transfer, PLEASE use EDIT on the memorial you wish to have updated instead of posting messages on this page. Thanks. If you must post a message, please include the memorial's ID# to which you are referring.

Most photos I add have been sent to me with permission from others over the last 40+ years and I will try to credit them when possible, or as this old memory of mine permits....grins. If you find a photo that you claim as your property I will remove it at your request. My objective in adding photos is to honor these people and to aid fellow researchers with their genealogy, never for profit. You may use my personal family photos as long as you give me credit and you are in no way profiting from them. As far as I'm concerned, headstone photos belong to everyone.

See this website for pointers for taking headstone photos.

I would also like to thank all of the wonderful volunteer photographers. You are doing a great service to digitally preserve these cemeteries and helping to preserve the memory of those that have gone before us.

I am very thankful for all the work those who create memorials have done on the behalf of others, like myself, so we may pay respect to our deceased family members, no matter if we are separated by distance or health. Thank you seems such small words, considering the time, effort, and personal sacrifice that goes into making this great site.

MOTTO TO LIVE BY
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming ...Wow! What a Ride!
- Hunter S. Thompson
