This Vera was born on 17 Feb 1903.
In this search, it may be possible that she never married a Springfield, The birth may have been as her own son at any time prior to her marriage to Charles Bobel. The Robert Springfield could have been an adopted son after 1940 Census. Robert could have changed his name from White to Springfield.

There are enough posted family trees to get a flavor of her time, without having to copy them to "reconstruct." She is identified as marriage to Charles Bobel in about 1928 in Michigan or Ohio, marriage to Fred A. White, died 21 Feb 1974 in Largo, Pinellas Co, FL. Based on the obit, she appears to have lived in Toledo, OH (1940 Census as Mrs White) to 1972 (two years before her death in Largo, FL). The US Census does not offer a clue.
A Family tree identifies Vera had a daughter and son while married to White. I sent a message to the owner to the link to this thread, perhaps they can identify further information.http://boards.rootsweb.com/localities.northam.usa.states.tex...
Another family tree identifies a Robert White, born in 1946 in Ohio, as son. But, he could have been a Springfield at that time.
