Victoria County, Texas - Virginia Anderson Yarbrough - June 16, 1976
[ Certificate of Death Image ]

Here's a picture of Mom's headstone. It says June 16, 1976 as her death date. I'm going to check with Memorial Park Gardens in Victoria tomorrow -- see what their records show.
I talked to the Colonial Funeral Home in Victoria, TX today. Interesting .... she saw something in their notes that had June 15th crossed out and June 16th hand-written. Somebody must have been having one of those days - LOL. So, indeed ... Mom died on Wednesday, June 16, 1976 and not June 15th, as her certificate of death shows. The burial happened on Thursday, June 17th.
And I got it straight about the time of death, too -- she told me that the time of death written on those papers is when the undertaker picked up the body. Now that seems odd to me. Mom -- as I remember it (which is imperfect) -- died around 1:20 a.m. The LVN on duty at the hospital signed over her body at 2:40 A.M.
