|Bio and Links|
We live in the corner of three counties northwest of Des Moines, but are welling to extend beyond that to help someone find their loved ones resting place. |
When we search for family stones, we usually take photos of stones that aren't on FAG in the same cemeteries we are searching.
My husband Alan has become involved in taking the photos. Many times he will make comments and sign his name.
We both enjoy the great outdoors and doing lots of walking. Volunteering is one of our passions, helping others.

My great grandmother Almeda Schofield Clark had collected an album full of obituaries and I'm not sure if they are related or friends she knew. And this came from my aunt's collection of family history.

I noticed on Louise Mason's memorial that there was a link to spouse, Winnie Mason. Winnie was Louise's mother, not spouse. I remember visiting them with my grandmother when I was a child.

|Hooked On Family||Betty Huscher|
Thanks so much for the photo of Betty Huscher's gravestone.
Betty was sooooooooooooo dear to our family. She watched our little boys every Wednesday so my husband and I could attend church choir rehearsals, and then she sat with them in the pews every Sunday until our choir songs were done. The boys loved her just like a grandma. In fact, our older son always called her GrandmaBettyHuscher...all one word!!!
I appreciate your efforts. My goodness, from Jefferson to Waukee...you put on a lot of miles.
Thanks so much.
