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: Raymond Foster
Hi Sue Ann,

You are most welcome.

The sun was just relentless Sunday and I was not happy with the photo that I shot. Thankfully, the sun/clouds were a bit more cooperative yesterday.

I have now replaced the original photo with something that I hope is a little more attractive.

Cheers! Steve

Larsons in Boise
Hi, Sue!!! I thought some of the Larsons were in Morris Hill and others in Terrace Lawn - they are sisters who married brothers, all from NE - would it be possible for you to help me figure out where they're buried ??
Gladys and Victor
Mildred and Alvin

Alvin was already on findagrave in Terrace Lawn, tho he had the wrong wife - his wife was born in 1908, not the other Mildred, b. 1911
I added the correct Mildred to Terrace Lawn
So maybe, Gladys and Victor are there too???
HELP, please!!!! :) k
