Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thank you for stopping by my profile page on findagrave.

I first started using findagrave to locate "famous" graves and quickly became more interested in the non famous side of findagrave. I love walking through cemeteries and photographing all the history they hold.
After the passing of my beloved grandmother Dorothy Johler Cruser I decided to start adding all of my family, which lead to my love of genealogy. I believe everyone should know where they came from and findagrave is an excellent way of leaving a place for future generations to search. I also enjoy strolling through all the other memorials on here and reading everyone's stories. I always leave a token when I visit as a way of letting their loved ones know they were visited and thought of.

On April 8,2014 I lost my best friend, my cousin Cindy Lou Corby Ritter, please stop by and leave her a token. Her loss has been extremely difficult on all of our family.

Please visit my very dear friend, who passed away on 1/10/11 Tiffany Michele Spangenburg.

Thank You to those of you who leave tokens on the memorials of my loved ones.

Hi Dorothy,

Thank you for your response on Elizabeth Noack Johler. If you would like, I can send you copies of the death certificates. Just let me know if your email address is still the same as on your profile. I had tried to email you previously but didn't hear back.

Elizabeth Noack Johler
Hi Dorothy,

Thank you for all the work you have done on Find A Grave.

I noticed your memorial for Mary Elizabeth Noack Johler (memorial #15836107)shows her parents as W. Chauncey & Kate C Noack but her death certificate shows her parents as Daniel Noack & Hannah Knapp?  

Is this the same person? The Knapps come into my chart through the Krotzer family and I just wanted to make sure what I had is correct.

Eva Clark Becker Hamel
Hi Dorothy,
I was wondering if you are related to Eva Clark Becker Hamel, or if you know anyone who is related to her. I am the granddaughter of Levi Hamel, who she was married to from 1986 to 2001. I have a photo album from the 1950's that was her's, with pictures of her and John Becker, and some other people who are probably relatives of hers. When my grandfather died, my Aunt Jean got some of his photo albums. She died recently, and I took all her photo albums to scan, and discovered this photo album of Eva's. Please let me know if you know of relatives of hers that may be interested in this photo album.
