Bio and Links
Bio Photo What began as a way to memorialize only members of my family has turned into something larger and seemingly open-ended. Most of my memorials are not for my relatives.

I have done extensive work in the following cemeteries:

Calvary Cemetery, West Chicago, Illinois

Concordia Cemetery, Forest Park, Illinois

East Batavia Cemetery, Batavia, Illinois

Glen Oak Cemetery, West Chicago, Illinois

Kaneville Cemetery, Kaneville, Illinois

Marywood Cemetery, Aurora, Illinois

North Cemetery, Saint Charles, Illinois

Oakwood Cemetery, West Chicago, Illinois

Resurrection Cemetery, Geneva, Illinois

River Hills Memorial Park, Batavia, Illinois

Saint John the Baptist Cemetery, Winfield, Illinois

Union Cemetery, Saint Charles, Illinois

West Batavia Cemetery, Batavia, Illinois

I gladly will make corrections or add information. Please do not use flowers for these purposes. Doing so is against FindAGrave guidelines.

Thank you to those who have added photographs and flowers to my memorials. They are appreciated. Please let me know that you have done so. I would like to see the photographs and flowers myself.

"The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it."


“The evil that is in the world always comes of ignorance, and good intentions may do as much harm as malevolence, if they lack understanding. On the whole, men are more good than bad; that, however, isn't the real point, but they are more or less ignorant, and it is this that we call vice or virtue; the most incorrigible vice being that of an ignorance that fancies it knows everything and therefore claims for itself the right to kill. The soul of the murderer is blind; and there can be no true goodness nor true love without the utmost clear-sightedness.”

Albert Camus, The Plague

Mennecke Grave
Thank you so much for the picture of Dolores and Carl Mennecke's grave. I was a little surprised that the date of her death was not yet on the monument.

But I do very much appreciate the picture. Please let me know if I can ever return the favor here in Texas.

Thanks for your time and efforts to find and fulfill my photo request. It's a disappointment when no headstone is found, like the person didn't exist.
