Hi my name is Judy (Cook) Penley. I live in the beautiful state of Missouri. I am the mother of four grown children & the Maw-Maw of twelve grandchildren & 2 great-grandchild, one born 07/2021 & another on the way (04/2022), ranging in age from 24 yrs old down to 2 months. Boy, am I ever a pushover when it comes to those grandbabies! I am the wife to the love of my life, my husband Ric, we've been together 34 years and 31 of those years married (12/1990).

I'm a genealogy nut, I caught the bug about 21 years back and I'm hooked. What I thought would be a part-time interest has grown into a full-time love. Through my genealogy research, I've reconnected with family & connected with distant family I never knew I had. My one hope is that my children, their children & so on, will maintain & continue to document family as they come & go.

Now, down to business...

If you want to have a memorial transferred, I generally do not do so, but I will be happy to add additional information, do corrections, or add links, just send me the information thru Find A Grave suggestions or corrections & I will be happy to add it to the memorial crediting you as the informant. Make sure to send all the pertinent information (ie: Deceased full name, cemetery name & memorial number for that person & whatever else you might think helpful to me).

I am also currently trying to load all my pics of the graves I have been able to visit. As you will see, when I first started I only took close-up pictures of the headstones, however, I later began taking full pictures of the headstones as well as close-ups, sorry for the error in judgment.

Now for some distressing news (for me)... I, unfortunately, lost my entire family tree file on my computer & just haven't had the heart to start reloading all that information. Hopefully, I will be able to begin that project sometime in the near future.

p.s. I am also sorry to say I am no longer able to get out & take photos of the cemeteries.
