And now a story from Crown Hill Cemetery.
Our Association President is always on duty, even while working out of town. He texted me today an obituary and asked if I thought the woman was a descendant of one of Crown Hill’s family.
Off to Ancestry dot com I go . . .
Before I start, rest in peace Vaudine.
I will post her obituary, a truly lovely woman and a newly discovered branch in the wide-reaching family tree branches of Crown Hill.
Vaudine’s last name of “Zlomke” is of course very familiar. But this is her married name. I needed to find her maiden name in order to research who her husband was.
Vaudine Louise Smith was the daughter of Vernon Louis Smith. Don’t you love it when daughters are named after their daddies? (my mom’s name was Frankie!)
In 1950, Vaudine married Johnny Zlomke. Johnny was a twin, his brother was Frederick E Zlomke. They were two of many Grandchildren in the Wilhelm Frederick Zlomke family.
Wilhelm and his wife Beulah Mae Shook are buried in Crown Hill, but only a few of their children are. Johnny and his wife Vaudine are not.
Vaudine passed away January the 4th at the age of 92 yrs old.
We love finding descendants of Crown Hill. Please always share with us if you come across these jewels in the crown of Crown Hill.

The Ford Family of Crown Hill Cemetery
The Ford Family of Crown Hill Cemetery
There are 3 very beautiful “cradle graves” under a shade tree in Section “A” of Crown Hill Cemetery.
Ella Bertha Madole-Ford, her husband Horace and their 1 yr old daughter Winnie Lee rest here.
Ella grew up in Madison County Texas. Her family was large and very well known. She had a great many Uncles and cousins.
Ella married Horace Edward Ford in Houston Texas., he was known as a farmer, but later in life was known as a riveter as well. Horace had a cousin named Benjamin Hiram Ford, he married Ella’s sister Mary Elizabeth Madole-Ford.
Together Horace and Ella had 4 children. Sadly, they lost an infant, and later their 1 yr old daughter Winnie Lee died as well. Their son Marion Edwin Ford, lived to be 48 yrs old until he passed from a heart attack. The Ford’s daughter Pearl went on to live to be 100 yrs old.
Ella Bertha passed away young, 34 yrs old. It is not known how she died as a death certificate or obituary cannot be located.
Her husband a few years later went on to remarry a woman named Tommie, who was known to take good care of her new young stepchildren Marion and Pearl.
Horace passed away from tuberculosis when he was 52 years old.
Please see the attached photo, I have also included a cleaned version. Bertha had approximately 8 siblings. This photo included 6 of them as notated by the gold star. This family portrait centers around Franklin Ross Madole and Nancy Madole’s family. They are the older couple center of the photo.
Are you a descendant of the Ford/Madole family? Please help us fill in the gaps of their beautiful story.

Crown Hill Cemetery rebuilding destroyed documents from images flashed in videos ⚡
I was cruising YouTube tonight and came across a video about the cemetery. A newspaper flashed on the screen. I was quick on my feet, did a screenshot, zoomed in and saw it was “The News Citizen”.
Off to Newspapers dot com I go . . . . and no such luck.
So I did some hard squinting, a little guessing, and I recreated the article. It’s a story that’s been told a few times.
The members and volunteers and supporters of Crown Hill work very hard to make sure this story NEVER has to be written again.
Please join us! You can’t ask for a nicer group of people to work alongside preserving this jewel in Pasadena.
Please help us make sure another article like this is NEVER written or printed again.

Crown Hill Cemetery needs your assistance identifying a mystery grave that has gone unidentified 🪦
Dear researchers and bloodhounds. We have a new mystery. In the photo you will see the four family members that are included in our list of known burials. They all 4 have headstones and are buried pretty much in this same arrangement, as on the family tree. We believe there is a 5th grave within this family plot with no headstone and no mention on the list of known burials.
If this is a 5th burial (I have not been back yet to probe, but the ground indications are that there is a burial there) then possibly it was a family death in the 2000’s. Meaning it happened after someone was maintaining a list/ledger and it didn’t get marked down. There is no headstone, so either the family was not able to have one, maybe there was no family to make arrangements or possibly it had one and it is lost.
Ancestry dot com and Newspapers dot com has not provided any details, so possibly our supporters might know a descendant and can ask if they know of a family member buried out there that is not reflected on this family tree.
All help is greatly appreciated!
Crown Hill Cemetery taking a break from the dead and killing crab grass to donate to the Fill the Bus campaign.

Tuesday June 7th is National VCR day for those who weren’t burned by Betamax. 📼
Tuesday June 7th is National VCR day. Does anyone still rock one of these? Who remembers the first time you worked one? First time at Blockbuster? Fist time you paid a late charge for a VHS tape you rented?
I know someone who once rewound, and rewound over and over until finally their frustration spilled out. “Look at it look at it, watch what happens!” So I waited as they hit play and an episode of “Law & Order” came on. And then mid sentence stopped, and began rewinding on its own.
Me: “Yes? And?”
Him: “See! It did it again!”
Me: “Yes. You ran out of tape.”
Him: “No no no no, it cant be. THE SHOW ISNT OVER YET!”
