I don't have an obit, but I do have cemetery info if you need it.

Guiseppe Sorce
Date of Death 5/23/1935
Date of Burial 5/27/1935
Age at death 69
Marital status Widowed
Last address 836 N Townsend St
Chicago IL
Funeral Home Martinelli, J
Cemetery Holy Cross
Location Block 18, Section C
Row ?, Lot 969
Grave 2

I also have information on the adjacent grave

Pasqua Sorce
618 E. Detroit (city not given..usually means local)
Funeral home name not given
Holy Cross Cemetery
Block 18, sec C, no row, Lot 969, Grave 1

Gives a little mystery to work on...Milw to Chi back to Milw
and even neater than that, the 3/4 of a year delay in death date to burial date for Pasqua. Could be a typo or a problem with the Catholic Church....back in those days they had all kinds of reasons for not allowing burial in a Catholic cemetery, suicide being one of them.Or, delay could have been a re-burial from another cemetery....Guiseppi bought a 2 plot lot at Holy Cross & decided to move Pasqua there???

Hope this helps. I am not related or connected to these people in any way, just helping out where I can.
