Our cemetery book didn't show Zora as being buried in Cowlitz View Memorial Gardens in Kelso, WA but I called the cemetery and she is buried there in Devotion, plot 229, Sp 3. No one else is buried there near her.
These are their obituaries:

(This says he died in a local hospital which would probably mean Longview, WA as Kelso didn't have a hospital in the 70s)
