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
12/10/1933
8/25/1934
75
Married
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.

Regards
Larry
