Below is an obit I found in a copy of the ROCKFORD MORNING STAR, TUESDAY, JANUARY 30, 1940. From: Rockford, Winnebago County, Illinois. This seemed like a good spot to post it to. I did my best to read it but the copy I have is not good quality. If you need a copy...let me know. Best Wishes, Lettie (I am not related.)
