I researched this person thinking it was my Gladys Rippy, but found out differently.
The Maude Cooper who was Offie's wife, and whose death certificate he signed, died in Wichita Falls in 1952. The Maude who died in 1972 was single.
This message is so old you probably already have this information, but I hated to throw it away without sharing it with someone in the correct family.
