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.

Nola Hileman Robison
Memorial# 69217781
Hello Sue, A while back you provided a photo of the grave in Dry Creek Syringa 3 S
Block 131 Plot 13-M for my Aunt Nola. It had a cement (blob) with her name scratched in it. Is there a chance you have or are able to locate an Obituary for her? Her last married name was Balderston although the nursing home where she passed only had the name Robison, it seems; the funeral company was Relaya in Boise. They too have just Robison. Thank you again for the photo you provided and any information you may have. I am having placed a bronze marker and removing the cement that is there now. She deserves a beautiful headstone!

Children of John e. and Amanda Myers
I would like to add the other four children of John and Amanda Myers to each of their sites. Although I just joined Find a Grave this is my first rodeo and am a little hesitant to post them on this public forum. Thank you for maintaining this site and your attention to this issue. Looking forward to your reply.
