Sentimental Sunday ~ (Walters) Palmer

Mary Elizabeth (Walters) Palmer was born February 20, 1945 in Merced, California. She lived a very short life as she died when she was only 42 years old. She was my husband's first wife and I worked with her for about a year, so I knew her as well.

Liz, as she was known, lived in Arkansas at the time of her death. She was about to move back to California when she was murdered. She was brought back to Livermore, California to be buried. Services were held on June 2, 1987.

Naturally, because she was a part of my husband's life and my life also, we both have history, emotions and sentiments regarding her life and her death. Unbelievably, it has almost been twenty three years since her services. My family still suffers when reminiscing about her. She however, suffers no more.

Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!


  1. Hi Cherpal,
    Wow, that moved me. Here I thought I knew so much about you/family, but this was a total surprise. I am so sorry about the tragic death.

  2. The dynamics are definitely interesting..and we shared the same birthday...of course I was born some years later...

  3. Hi Barbara,

    Thank you, and yes, sometimes we think we know so much about someone, but we all have our backgrounds and history.

    Hey Deez,

    I see you do have the same birthday, but according to Facebook you were born much much earlier!

  4. Thank you, so much, for sharing this very sentimental story.
