I would like to keep the profile of my Mother closed for awhile.

Sorry for your loss, Rolanda.

"Since WikiTree is for genealogy collaboration, including collaboration on profiles of living and recently-deceased family members, privacy is very important here."

See https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Privacy

It is not mandatory that every profile representing a deceased person is "Open". Only the profiles of people born 150 + years ago or died 100 + years ago must be "Open".

My personal practice is to leave profiles of any woman with living children as Red Private, because too many banks use "Mother's Maiden Name" as a security question.
