I'm looking for an obit or death notice for Gladys Priscilla. Wagner whose maiden name was Burton. Gladys may have gone by a nickname "Hettie" Born 2 Jan. 1915, Wilmington, NC to Katie and Samuel L. Burton. I have not been able to determine spouse's name.
Here's the mystery: Died on 10 Oct. 1996 in Buena Park, Orange County, California but SSDI shows last benefit was sent to Montrose, Montrose county, Colorado. If she was visiting in Buena Park, Orange County, California..I doubt if there had been a death notice in Orange County newspapers.
My guess is that "Hettie" or Gladys had been a resident of Montrose, Colorado and had been visiting a relative in Orange County when she died? Or maybe she moved after last SS check went to old address in Colorado.
What newspaper was in business in Montrose, Colorado in 1996?
I may be all wrong with my theory and I may doing a wild goose chase but have to try. I don't give up easy.
Any other suggestions?
