Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired in Boise, Idaho. I have loved spending time in cemeteries since I was a little girl. Helping people by exploring cemeteries and photographing grave markers for them is a dream retirement activity for me.

I walk the rows taking random photos when I am in a cemetery, and add the photos or the entire memorial to Findagrave if they are not in. I particularly concentrate on veterans (and their spouses), infants and children. I feel the veterans have earned the right to go to the front of the line. And I feel that since the babies and the children got so little on earth, at least I can give them some electronic "life".

I am always happy to add any information to a memorial I manage. Just send it. I am also delighted to add obituaries; just make sure that I have the correct attribution to add so the paper's copyright is respected.

If you find any errors of fact, date, relationship, or spelling on any of my memorials, please let me know. As a former professional proofreader, I KNOW that no one is perfect all the time, including me. I will fix it.

I will transfer management of memorials in line with the Findagrave guidelines, which specify relatives in a direct line. Specifically, they say: "Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred." Please do not ask.

Thank You, Thank you, Sue Ann!
Wow, I didn't expect to hear back from anyone so quickly! Thank you so much Sue Ann for confirming that Adeline is in Canyon Hill. And thank you for making these memorials. You and the other volunteers make family reunions (of a sort) possible.

Sue, #62080669
Hello. thank you so much for what you do with Find a Grave in Boise, I am the son of Millie Nash and a graduate of Boise High 1971. As you can see from my site, my mother raised me in Boise and I never knew my father - Clarence James DILLION, I have done enought genealogy to form a 100% definate connection. I would like very much to have her site so I can get information up to date as far as husbands and connections including her eight children, I hope. Thank you for your help.

Thanks again, Thana

Monica Martinez Grave Marker
Thank you Sue Ann for the wonderful photo. I live in Phoenix and recently purchased this marker for my sister who was born 2 years before me. My parents couldn't afford a marker at the time, and we eventually moved to Phoenix. My parents have recently passed away and I didn't want my sister to be forgotten. Someday I hope to see this in person.
