I've found a Lena Barr on the SSDI:
dob:  11 Mar 1885
dod:  15 Oct 1971
issued in 1965 in Texas
last residence:  Dallas, TX

Can anyone find an obit for her?  All I'm finding on Ancestry is the SSDI info.

There is a SS claim in 1965, with her parents SS#s listed.  It states she was born in Bolivar county, Mississippi.  May be another dead end.

Finally found the obit of Harold C Barr, courtesy of The Memphis Library.  Thanks to all who tried to find it.
