To all those who live in the Lapeer area and share information, Thank you.

I am seeking information on an aunt I didn't know I had until after my mother's death. Her name was Nora McLinden, and she lived at Lapeer from 1924-1951. On her death certificate (died July 15, 1951), she's listed as having quadriplegia, mental deficiency.

Any information would be extremely helpful. I'm wondering about how she lived and died (according to family lore, she died on the floor next to her bed).
She was autopsied and I wonder if records exist showing where she lived at Lapeer. I'm especially interested in speaking with anyone who worked there and hearing their stories. I'd like to humanize the records.

Thank you so much ahead of time. I plan to visit Lapeer in May and would like any information about where to go to find records and would love to set up a meeting with someone who worked at Lapeer during the decades from mid-twenties to early fifties.
