1979 Obituary

Is there anyone who can help me find an obituary? My grandmother died in Lake Charles in 1979. Apparently the only place you can find the archives is at the University, which is quite a ways from my home in Pittsburgh. Here is the information that I have:

Barbara Jean Williams Deibert Freeman. Deibert was first marriage, Freeman was second. She was born in the 1930s and died in a house fire in 1979 (November or December.) Any help would be greatly appreciated, since I can only find one record that said she was ever alive!

I've checked the front page and the obits of the Lake Charles American Press, November and December, 1979, and found nothing on your grandmother, Barbara Jean Williams Deibert Freeman. If you would like to search the archives of the LCAP, check their website at http://www.americanpress.com For a $10.00 charge per month, you can have access to the archived papers. Also available is a "day pass". Check the website for details.

Good luck in your research,
Maude Ann Gilmore

Sorry, I didn't see that someone else contacted you about the article. I've looked for the obit, but can't find one for her. Strange! But if there was no relative locally or if finances were a question, an obit may not have been affordable for the family at the time of death. :o(
