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.

I asked Michelle Evens Wahl (member #47814448) for the specific cemetery. It turns out this gal I've been looking for is actually buried at Greenleaf Cemetery in Canyon County, near Caldwell. She already has a page & grave pic for that place. Even so, thank you for the help you have given me.

Betty Lee Jones Callister
Sue Ann, thanks so much for the headstone photo of Betty Callister. I am not positive but I believe Betty's married name is Callister and maiden is Jones. Please don't take this for proof. I'm going to do a bit of research and see what I can find. Thanks to this, I'm able to dig a little deeper. If I'm right, her husband was Roy Smith Callister b. 1919 d. 1998 in Pocatello, Idaho. From there, I should be able to find out more information. There may have been a divorce which might explain her being buried under the name of Jones.

I'll let you know as soon as I get it figured out. Thanks!

If she is not listed at Morris Hill or Dry Creek, then she most likely is not buried at either one. So among the potential locations in Boise, that eliminates 2.
