Bio and Links
Bio Photo In 2006 I googled my mother's name and found her on Find a Grave--this was a joyful day for me. Of course, I had to find everyone else! It took awhile after joining (initially to place 'flowers' on their memorials) before really understanding enough to make memorials myself. This I began in 2011, starting with my darling husband. Was involved as a bereavement facilitator for my church (right after Ken's death) - am very aware of the needs of the grieving to tribute their loved ones. Find a Grave is a wonderful place to do just that. Am also quite experienced in the pain which insensitive/unthinking people can inflict. (Am presently not actively facilitating--although I still find myself helping with grief issues any where I happen to be.)

My direct family lines are through Fonnesbeck, Duval, Gerbet, and Bissegger families.

My husband's direct family lines are Pitcher, Jorgensen, Plowman, and Barrett.

And many, many more before!

However, I am fascinated by all.

Have found several loved ones and friends through findagrave and am thoroughly hooked on helping to make all of our searches more satisfying, productive, educational and just plain fun!

Thank you!
You have done an amazing job on the Fonnesbeck family. Thank you so much for your work. You've inspired me to fill in some gasps on my own family tree. Did we meet at Elaine Rasmuson's house a few years back? I was visiting her with my husband and two small children from Texas and met someone working on Fonnesbeck genealogy that I believe could have been you!

Thanks Pat for the catch! I deleted the memorial I created and sent the info so that the other person could update theirs.
Thanks again,

Forsyth Cemetery has no record of this persons burial.

Are you sure she is in the correct cemetery?

I wanted to stop by and wish you and your family have a very Merry Christmas!

Annie :)

RE: David Sutton Cardon
Thank you for giving me the cemetery where he rests. The plot no. request was apparently submitted to admin members and they are really great at getting those done. If not let me know and I will add the plot location.

Thank you so much,

Your request:
David Sutton Cardon
Hello Rhonda--I just submitted an edit for the plot no. for David (63547583). He is buried in the Logan Cemetery, Cache, Ut. Hope this helps. Pat

please send new obit

Find A Grave contributor Pat Pitcher has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Betty Christiansen.

Their suggestion:
Hi Cami--I was just reading the obituary on Betty's memorial. It is NOT hers! Do not know why it took me so long to realize. Dumb me. You will find hers on Legacy. If not, I have a copy and would be delighted to send it to you. Sound ok?

(I read it today because Joy Pitcher, her sister, died today. You know, reminiscing time. And Betty's son, Lynn, just recently died.)

Any way let me know when you have time.

Thanks for pointing out the duplicates. I transferred data from the memorial with the least info to the other one and moved "Vest" from middle name to maiden name. :o)
