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: Grove Zimmerman
Thanks Sue but I'll wait until she is reachable because they are my relatives and I want the memorial transferred to me.

Grove Zimmerman
Thank you very much, Sue Ann, for the very professional photos. Grove was married to my first cousin. Do you know if Sheryl the poster of Grove's Find A Grave page is still active. She has "disabled" any way to contact her. I would like to "flesh out" his page.

Appreciate your time and effort to take and post
these photos. I worked at the phone company on Main street Boise with Viloy in the 1960's. I remember her daughter's passing, attended the funeral, very sad. Marcee was Pregnant, suffered a brain amorism.
Thank You for doing this...

RE: pelton wheeler
Hi Sue Ann I just saw a grave marker for Joseph Wheeler, since I did not get a message through find a grave you must have gotten someone to do it. So I want to thank you for your time. You got the Pelton's for me so again thanks.
