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.

What a pleasant surprise to have a request filled so quickly. The fact that the images are so precise and clear speaks volumes about how much you love what you do. Thank you so much. His memorial is complete now.
Regards, Dianne

RE: Phyllis Moore photo at Cloverdale
I'm sorry but this is my grandmother. I had requested a pic for her but my daughter also requested a pic for my grandfather that I didn't know about. She received a pic from Thomas Biggins and I deleted my request since it's the same headstone. I didn't mean to upset anyone as I'm new to this and just working on linking family and needed a photo. If I did something wrong, I'm sorry. If I did it wrong, I'm sorry. Please let me know the proper way I should have handled this.

RE: Sundles marker photo
Thank you for planning to check on that. I didn't realize that that's how it was done sometimes.

Sundles marker photo
Thank you for adding the Sundles marker photo. I'm not related. I was helping my Decker cousins with their Decker line. One of them married a Sundles in OH. Looking for her parents I stumbled on her brother Archie Sundles who'd settled in OH. I don't know how these Sundles were related to Archie, but it's an uncommon surname, so there must be some connection that someone might figure out some day.

Pictures of Headstones
Hi Sue,

Thank you so much for taking pictures of the headstones of my uncles. I was able to get them printed and give copies to my Mom and her surviving siblings. I really appreciate your time and effort in doing this for our family. It really is so kind of you to volunteer your time to do things like this for families that aren't able to get there and do it for themselves.

Thanks Again,

Arlina Rynearson
