Searching for information regarding the deaths of Dr. Joseph Prokop and his wife, Shirley, at St. Joseph, Missouri on March 6, 1993. I am doing this search for a friend who does not have a computer and is not computer-literate. She received from one of their sons a newspaper clipping (no banner) announcing their obituaries. It appeared from the clipping that they died together, but there were no details.
The son had written his name and address on the sheet, and she wrote to him immediately but never received a reply. She would dearly like to know the nature of her friends' deaths. They had been friendly while her husband and Dr. Prokop attended medical school, raised their children together, etc. until the Prokops went to St. Joseph, Mo. where they continued to correspond, eg. Christmas cards, etc. My friend is still in shock at their deaths and the total lack of response from the son. She fears that something terribly tragic happened to Dr. and Mrs. Prokop. Any information you could provide to me at my E-mail address would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
