I received your email but I didn't find anything definitive about Henry and Lottie's deaths.

I found a Henry Thomas who died 6 March 1981, Dallas Co. Source=Texas Death Index 1903-2000.

A Henry Thomas who was born 4 Jan 1900 and died July 1973, Dallas, Dallas Co., TX.

A Henry Thomas who died 4 Nov. 1972, Dallas Co. Gender=Female.
Marital Status=Widowed. Source=Texas Death Index 1903-2000. The gender could have been entered incorrectly.

There are two obituary volunteers at Dallas County Resources, . Be sure to choose one or split the group between the two.

A Lottie Ella Thurman Thomas b. 25 Sept. 1896, Texas died 9 May 1987, Los Angeles Co.
Mother's Maiden Name=Tabor.
Source=California Death Index 1940-97.

Finding an obituary in Los Angeles Co. is more of a challenge. The area is geographically large and contains many towns and cities. First you need to obtain a copy of Lottie's death certificate which will tell you which city she died in. Do a Google search for the Los Angeles County Registrar, Norwalk CA or the Office of State Vital Statistics, Dept. health Services, Sacramento.

After you 've found the city, I'll help you find a source for the obituary. Successful Searching!
