Hi, I sent Patty on freepages an email and she's available now to look for the obituary. She's had some recent challenges but she said to tell you to send her the request and she'll look it up.
I don't know if she'll have access to a 1936 obituary. You might have to contact the University of Oregon, http://libweb.uoregon.edu/general/gethelp.htmlhttp://libweb.uoregon.edu/general/gethelp.html . They charge $30/hr but the last time they found an obituary for me, it was $7.00.
Thank you for the feedback too. Successful Searching!
