Obit. Lookup: Evelyn Strange; d: 1959 Leavenworth, KS

I am looking for information regaurding Evelyn Strange. Evelyn's (also known as Eva) maiden name was Stanley and she was born in June 1886 in Nova Scotia (daughter of George Stanley & Florence Emms.

Twice betrothed, she was first married to a man named Martin Last (he died sometime after 1930). With Martin we believe she had a daughter named Harriet N. Last while living in Illinois. Their family moved around alot. We know that they lived in Illinois then Michigan, ending up in Kansas.

I have found that my great-grandmother's obituary in 1958 states that her sister was living in Leavenworth, Kansas at the time of her death. We also found that she had been married a second time to a man with the Surname "Strange." There have been a couple family obituaries that have stated this husband's surname. I have found an Obituary index on that shows:

Leavenworth Times (Kansas) Obituaries, 1957-64
Given Name: Evelyn
Surname: Strange
Date Printed: Oct 6, 1959
Maiden Name: Stanley
Page: 5

I am looking for this obituary and possibly a photocopy/scanned copy of it. I am also looking for death record information. I believe this is her and would really like to be sure of it. If anyone could assist me in this search it would be greatly appreciated. This family has been a major brickwall. I can give a bit more information if needed.

Thank you for your time,
Chi (Rouse) Benedict
