Re: Charles & Ann Pugh obituaries?
I found the obit for Charles. He died in 1975 not 1995. He is buried in Glendale Cemetery. His tombstone has Anna on there also, but no death date. I couldn't find an obit for her. She was living with Helen Ghidina in 1990, so I assume she would have died locally.
His obit was in the Oct 11, 1975 Pekin Daily Times, P 2:
