In doing my genealogy research, I have come across a 1959 obituary notice of a relative.
The funeral home that did the services was Riedlinger-Lemen in Cincinnati, Ohio, as some of you probably know, this funeral home is no longer in business. Would anyone have any idea which funeral home took over their business, or how I could locate their records?
I am looking for a funeral service record for documentation to confirm the names of the parents of the individual for whom the obituary was written.
This lady lived in Cincinnati, Ohio at the time of her death, at one point, in the 1930's , I think, she and her family lived in New Richmond, Ohio. The following is her obituary as it appeared in the newspaper:
COLLINS, Della (nee;LAWSON), beloved wife of the late Albert Collins, dear mother of Mrs. Jesse Marie Baxter Monday, Oct. 5, 1959, residence, 104 W. Liberty-st: age 87 years. Funeral services, Thursday Oct 8 at the Riedlinger-Lemen Funeral Home, 19 Green-st, at 9:30 a.m. Friends may call Wednesday between 4 and 9 p.m.
Not knowing the printing custom of the time, I don't know if the daughter's name mentioned is Jesse Marie or if Jesse is her husband's and the Marie should be in parenthesis, as is the custom today.
I am interested in contact with relatives of this family, please contact: Sandbox501@yahoo.com
