Bio

My memorials are always "a work in progress." I like for them to be more than just dates; I want them to tell you something about a life that was lived.

I feel the point is to create a memorial to honor a life while documenting the grave site. I appreciate members who document cemeteries with the intent of transferring those memorials to friends and family, who will bring the memorial to life with photos, biographies, personal stories and family links. It takes just as much work and time to write a biography with pictures and links, as it does to document headstones at a cemetery. I appreciate and value both efforts equally.

Every summer, my parents would load 5 kids into the station wagon and drive to Virginia to visit my Grandmother, Nora (Swindall) Vanover-Fleming. We always stopped to visit many of my aunts and the M.T. Swindall Family Cemetery in Osborn Gap.

My family genealogy names are:
Vanover
Swindall
Austin
Fleming
Gilliam
Skeen
Mullins
Phipps
Haase
Ryan
Dibble
Frasier and Fraser

I assist with my high school alumni "In Memory" page on their website. When time allows, I intend to honor classmates on Find a Grave.
