Bio

The Genius and Blessing of Find A Grave: Many photos and bios in this database will outlive the actual headstone and newspaper archives. I love making sure people's lives aren't forgotten and linking families. It's a blessing to so many of us in life and in spirit.
Happy to Help You: I can be found in the Association of Professional Genealogists registry (see link above) if you have need of my assistance. I'm also a member of the National Genealogical Society. I'd be happy to help you in any way I can, whether in your work on this database or in your family history research. I'm very grateful for the help I've received all these years.
♥ ❤ ♥ A Project Close to My Heart: ♥ ❤ ♥ There are 474 burials in Provo City Cemetery for patients of the Utah Territorial Insane Asylum (now known as Utah State Hospital); most in unmarked graves, given a pauper’s burial, alone without ceremony, between 1886 and the 1960s. I ask that you please consider donating to the Utah State Hospital Forgotten Patients Cemetery Project to help construct a monument to honor these precious, forgotten souls. They are home now with their Savior, Jesus Christ, but deserve to be remembered here on Earth. See my growing virtual cemetery for them here on my profile page.
Early Inspiration: My first realization that history was a passion for me began in childhood and came through the freakish looks my friends would give me as I'd stand motionless and stare at the dilapidated remains of old cabins, barns and homesteads, wishing that for just a few seconds, I could go back in time to see and feel what they did. I wanted to know what life was like for those that lived there, built their lives literally by the sweat of their brow and sacrificed so much in search of truth, freedoms and a new way. I'm grateful for and to them.
How I Got Started: I have loved histories, research, biographies, obituaries and have been fascinated with the Old West and Victorian times since I can remember. So when I was introduced to genealogy it just fit! For me, it began in 1991 when I was asked by a sweet, elderly neighbor to help her with her family history; she was legally blind and "...afraid to learn how to do this stuff alone, and I sense you love well and learn well." I gave it a try, was quickly hooked and later, became a genealogist. As a young, busy mom, I didn't have time to get into family history as much as I desperately wanted to. A wise woman reminded me, "There is a season and a time... one day you'll be able to." Right, as usual, Granny!

Requests: Please use the EDIT tab on each memorial to send requests for updates, corrections or transfers. I'm happy to add/correct appropriate info if requested with respect, kindness and your source.
Permissions: I waive all claim of copyright for my headstone and cemetery photos I've taken; I happily share them. You may use for non-commercial use. However, my graphic designs, researched and written biographies (not compiled bios) are under copyright law. DO NOT post, publish or share as your own or submit to other websites. I believe in sharing generously in this work, that's why I do it. I don't believe in stealing or claiming other people's hard work. I try very hard to cite my source(s) in my work. If I have overlooked citing a source, please email me or send edit request through the memorial in question.
Transfers: I love this work, this website, and I volunteer a lot of my time here. However, transfers have become a real issue, many Find A Grave friends are noticing the same thing. Most Find A Grave contributors are GREAT when negotiating transfers, but too many are toxic. Due to demanding and disrespectful correspondence, I now adhere to Find A Grave transfer rules. I also reserve the right to make rare exceptions. Also, a transfer will not happen if you: Fail to state relationship: spouse, parent, sibling, grandparent, great-grandparent, children, grandchildren or great-grandchildren | are a collector (harvesting with few contributions) | create duplicate claiming you'll delete after transfer | request transfer on my profile (use EDIT on memorial) | or have been abusive in the past. You can add memorial to your virtual cemetery instead. Abuses will be reported with screenshot as proof. No exceptions. I'm sorry some create this need. I'm grateful to those that know how to conduct themselves in an appropriate, kind and adult way. Let's keep in mind why and how this website exists.
Please Remember:
● Let's be patient and kind, not one of us is perfect. We're all kinda putzy sometimes!
● I'm truly grateful to all those that have been so giving of their time, efforts and info in this work. I want to thank you all very much and I'm happy to help you if I can.
● My (or anyone's) edit requests are not meant to insult, but to help complete memorials, link families and give honor. If I send an edit request, I've verified with primary sources.
● Please, ONE surname ONLY in title of memorials (the one that matches headstone) even with multiple marriages. Other married names go in bio area. It's against Find A Grave rules to add more because it interferes with search function and promotes duplicates. Please learn and adhere to Find A Grave naming conventions.
● I have 21 days to respond to requests, rarely taking longer than 24 hours. I've been entrusted with 5000+ memorials from inactive, photo-only or fallen gravers, besides memorials I've created; it takes time to update and maintain them all. Please be patient and kind. Enjoy Find A Grave!
