Bio and Links
Bio Photo My goal is to help others and photograph cemeteries that I visit. Due to Mother Nature and the elements of time, even stone can erode. Why not preserve what we can for others to share in the future? If I am fulfilling a request, I will try to add memorials for all people I find with the same last name or all that are interred in the same general area - this little detail can be a jackpot to someone's family tree.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like to manage your relative's memorial. I am not related to most and would like to see memorials in the hands of family - please use the edit tab on the top of the memorial. I am human so if you find an error on a memorial, please let me know so I can get it corrected. Most of my work is done later in the evening and my eyes can overlook things.

RE: RE:LaVern James Opelt d. 13 Aug 1978 Grayslake, Lake Co., IL
Lynnie, Yes thank you, It appears no one has added him to Find A Grave yet. I tried for an obit for him via the Grayslake, IL public library and he looked. Did you get what I thought I'd forwarded to you of his findings. ? No obit though. :( . Without knowing where he is buried or if cremated, we cannot link him to his children nor them to Ella. Susie

RE:LaVern James Opelt d. 13 Aug 1978 Grayslake, Lake Co., IL
Hi Lynnie: After receiving LaVern Jr.'s Kokomo obit who died in 1994 in Kokomo, IN, I learned: that he was the son of Wm. Paul Opelt who died in Chicago in 1929. Thanks to a death entry on Anc., he was buried at Woodlawn Cemetery, Cook Co, md. to Idella (Gard) who remarried after Wm. P.'s death to an Elmer Dessert, thus her name at time of her death(Jan.30,1960 Milwaukee Co.,WI)
Wm. & Idella Opelt had a daughter who died in Cook Co., IL,3 Oct 1926. LaVern James Opelt Sr.'s only sibling was the dec'd. sister it appears.

I just checked the online ref. you gave me for Milwaukee for LaVern Sr., but appears they do not yet have done those dates. Do you know of it elsewhere? I would sure like to be able to find him, and his parents' burials as I found LaVern Sr.'s other son's Find A Grave Memorial, along with his wiee (Wm. Paul Opelt (1939-2005) in FL

Any ideas?
