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.

RE: Carl Parker
Carl Albert Parker was born on 7 Oct 1905 in Omaha, Douglas, Nebraska. He was the son of George Otto Oscar Parker and Nellie Hurtz. My grandmother told me that his mother ran away when he was young and was raised by his step-mother, Minnie Elizabeth Gander. He married my grandmother on 6 May 1933 in Missoula, Missoula, Montana. He was a traveling novelty salesman who would travel around the country. He drowned in Weber Lake while he was swimming on 26 Jul 1936. Weber Lake was located in Peterson, Morgan, Utah. My grandmother told me that he was swimming when his leg cramped up and he caught a current. It took five hours to recover his body.
