Mildred L. Blankenship Johnston 1986 obit or other help

Can anyone help me track down more information or an obituary for Mildred L. Blankenship Johnston?

1. California Death Index, 1940-1997

Mildred Laura Johnston
b. 4 Feb 1911 Texas
d. 27 Jul 1986 San Diego
Mother's maiden name: Moore
Father's surname: Blankenship
(Maybe she's buried in San Diego in Alpine cemetery, near her parents?)

2. Mildred and her brother Jack were mentioned in the obituary for Lawrence F. Blankenship as ". . . a sister, Mrs. Mildred Johnston of Santa Monica, CA and a brother, Jack Blankenship of El Cajon, CA." I don't know anything about her husband or whether she had children. More information might be found if an obituary was printed in a San Diego newspaper. Mildred's husband's first name might have been John. I looked in California death records for a John Johnston, and there were several around Mildred's age, but without actual copies of the records it's anyone's guess at this point.

3. In the 1930 census Mildred Blankenship was 21, single and lived on her own in Santa Monica where she was employed as an usherette in a theater.
