Cora Wheeler Gramps died in South Bend in 1946. She was buried in Maplewood Cemetery in Valparaiso, IN. Would like to be able to find her obituary.
Cora was the sister of my husband's grandfather Roy Forrest Conrad, I have the obituary for her husband John Gramps. Any help would be appreciated

In John F. Gramps's obituary, it is stated that his wife Cora died in 1934, and that he moved to South Bend from Valparaiso about 1957.
So it's likely that Cora died in Valparaiso.
She does not show up in the South Bend Tribune obituary index.

I had checked Valparaiso but will do so again. Also, I will check Kouts or Hebron papers for that time period. She had lived in Pleasant Township, Porter County for awhile.
Valparaiso Public Library has an excellent genealogy dept.
Thanks for helping.

Here is Cora's death notice from the South Bend Tribune.
You should be able to find an obit in the Valparaiso newspaper.

Her obituary was published in The Vidette-Messenger on Wednesay, March 21, 1934, Page 2. I do have a copy of it that I found on ancestry.com.

Thank you for the information. I had the wrong date of death due to a listing from a cemetery.
