Sunday's Obituary - Mary Dart nee LeGrave
Anyway, I was cleaning my computer's desktop over the holidays. It was more than halfway filled with various icons of mostly garbage. That's when I came across this clipping that I needed to edit and stitch together to post on. I also realized that I needed to update her entry in my family tree. I didn't have her maiden name and was missing her daughter Jean from my tree.
I'd make a New Year's Resolution to fix this in the new year, but we always seem to break those. Let me say that I'll try to be better.
"Mrs. George Dart Sr.
Mrs. George Dart Sr., 57, 1150 Klaus St., died at a Green Bay hospital Thursday afternoon following a year's illness. The former Mary Le Grave was born in Rosiere and married Mr. Dart 41 years ago.
