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 for taking time to get these photos. I'm trying to find the connections so I'm sure I'll be forwarding edits before long.

Thank you
I so appreciate you taking the time to tell me how you liked the photo, Sue Ann. You are very thoughtful! I found that some time ago and use it when an obituary mentions a fondness for hummingbirds, or when the spirit moves me.

Take care,

Dale Earl Ramsey photo
Thanks for the photo. The weird thing is that I think this is David Earl Ramsey but for some reason his name changed to Dale. All of the relations in the obit were the same, etc. I thought that there had been an error on the obit and the gravestone would be correct but now I am confused. Back to the stacks for more research.

Beatty Family
Thanks for the photos for the Beatty Family. I appreciate you including the family section and family headstone. Those often aren't included so it's good to see them. Thanks for taking that extra step.

Thanks for taking care of Joes page. I was best friends with his brother when I lived in Boise as a child. I would walk through Morris Hill Cemetery on my way home from Jefferson Elementary. Thats where my love for graving was born!

Are you a descendant of William and Della Cutler, buried at Nampa, ID? You have their memorial pages. I am a relative via the Ellis and Thompson families.
