I am Nelda Beavers Curtis Fastenau. I enjoy walking cemeteries with my husband taking pictures for people. Just doing our part.I think this is a wonderful site. I ran across it when working on genealogy. I was very touched and honored to find a tribute to my mom. Hoping I can do that for someone else. My husband, Stan got me interested in Genealogy, and I have found it is very addicting.A little bit about me: I was born 3-12-1957 in Elmhurst, IL. My parents were Olan and Leone Reynolds Beavers. I have two older brothers, James Beavers of Hector AR, and Tommy Beavers of Northlake, IL. I graduated from West Leyden High School in Northlake, IL in 1975. In 1979, I moved to Arkansas. Quite an adjustment for a city girl, but I loved it. My parents moved down a year later. They always wanted to retire in Arkansas, where they grew up.I was married for 18 years and have a beautiful daughter Janice Curtis Lusk, who is also my best friend. I returned to school and got my AAS in Office Technology and in Accounting.5 years after my divorce, I met the love of my soul mate, Stanley Fastenau and we married in 2006. We now live in Willard, MO. My daughter married Clint Lusk, and the best part I got a grandson in the deal, Cain Lusk. In 2006, they had a beautiful baby girl, Eden Lusk...the light of my life. In 2013 they had a lil guy, Silas James. What a personality! He keeps us laughing! Something about hearing..."Hi Granny" & "Love You" melts the heart.If I had two words to describe my life it would be "Fulfilled" and "Blessed".If anyone has any corrections on anything I enter, or if you would like anything removed just email me. Glad to oblige.
