Kathleen Kissinger nee Tuck obit
« on: Tuesday 21 September 21 00:05 BST (UK) »
Could someone have a look and see if they can find Kathleen's obit please?
 She died 7 May 1994 Battle Creek, Michigan. Father should be Donald Ray Tuck and mother Hattie North. I am trying to connect her with Donald and Hattie.

Thanks RJ that is great.
Would it be possible to see if Donald and Hattie are still living? Donald born 12 Aug 1921 and was living when his sister Genevieve Belcher died in 2009. Hattie was not mentioned in that obit so I am not sure about her. She was born 30 may 1926.

Thanks for for that interesting article. It appears that Don and Hattie have had a full and interesting life. Great to see that they are still with us and hopefully have good health.

Thanks Sandra
According to U S Social Security Applications and Claims Index Kathleen is shown as Breen, Gibbs and Kissinger. I know about Breen and Kissinger but nothing about Gibbs. She married James Breen 9 Jul 1966 and Gordon Kissinger 6 Oct 1990. Would a marriage announcement show up to Mr Gibbs sometime between 1966 and 1990?
