Can you provide section and row for Betty Craig Osborn Laker 1916-2015? We want to add real flowers to her grave but could not locate it.

I found the photo #0818 but would appreciate knowing if this is the old or new section.

Subject: Nora Cumminggrave in Atherton?

I am looking for my great grandmother's grave. Her name is Nora Cummings (Butterfield originally) and found records saying she was buried in Atherton cemetery, but I looked through all of your photos and could not find anything. Maybe it's one of the photos that are not clear or unreadable? Would you be able to help me? Thank you!
