Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born Christina Noel Nelson in Centralia, WA in 1965. My parents Nile B. Nelson and Sandra L. Nelson (Sticklin). Owned and operated the "Sticklin" Greenwood Memorial Park cemetery at the time, my grandparents and great grandparents before them beginning in 1918 ... strange to some but the cemetery was home to me. My Great-Great Grandfather L.J. Sticklin was a pioneer who moved to the area in 1890, the Swedish cabinet maker who also made coffins (not uncommon at the time). 6 generations of Sticklin decendents are buried at Greenwood Memorial Park along with many others so I've started a support group on facebook to help with the cemeteries preservation. Volunteer events both past and future along with helpful information is posted online ... a link to this site is on my profile page along with an e-mail.

This group exists to help family's in finding POSITIVE ways to ensure the care, upkeep and preservation of Greenwood Memorial Park Cemetery.

If you see any errors, would like additional information added and/or transfer management of any records please feel free to contact me.

Roy M. and Minnie Ellis
I am trying to locate the graves of Roy Morten Ellis #48892633 and Minnie Ellis #48892631. I have a map of the Greenwood cemetery. If you could tell me the section and lot number I could find them. This man is the brother-in-law of my husband's cousin. My husband has many relatives buried in this cemetery. We have located all but Roy and Minnie. We appreciate all the work you do to maintain the cemetery. It is so sad to see the cemetery in this poor condition. When my father-in-law died in 1970 the cemetery was beautiful. I believe your mother was in charge at that time.

Graham Bush families
Hi Christina - it has been so long since we have been in contact. I am working hard on getting the Graham manuscript updated. I have over 650 pages and climbing. You have a picture up on Clarence Bush Fine A Grave. it is of a couple and 3 boys. Do you know who is in the picture. It is not identified. Clarence only had 2 sons so it is probably not Clarence unless one of the boys was visiting. Hope all is well with you. Donna

Requesting tranfer of management for my Aunt
Hello, I recently created a memorial page for my Aunt Mae. Someone wrote to me and told me that it was a duplicate so I removed it. The reason I didn't see that it was a duplicate was because I entered it in as Mae R. Clements and did not put the second name that is on the headstone. The second name is a writers Penn name that my Uncle thought would be nice to put on the headstone. This is something that I would like to make clear in the bio for her.
I would appreciate if you would transfer my Aunts page (find a Grave memorial # 48842950), along with other requested names of my grandparents James S. & Esther Clements.

Thank You!

Requesting transfer of management for my grandparents
I Sponsored the pages of my grandparents, and I thought that this would allow me to create a bio for them, but I see that I am unable to write a bio for them unless the management is transfered to me. I would appreciate it if you would transfer the management over to me for my grandparents
James S. Clements - find a grave memorial # 48842948
and my grandmother Esther Mae Clements
-find a grave memorial number # 48842947

Thank You!

My Grandmother
HI I was wondering where you got the info to add Elsie Hughes to Greenwood Memorial Park? #48910916

That isn't her complete name and she is in no way buried there.

Will you please let me know? 503-632-4344

I would rather you take the whole thing down since it's not even possible.

Thank you for your time! I know how time consuming history can be!
