Obituary look up for Mrs Rebecca Jane GRIGGS died 1950

I need a transcription of any obituary for Mrs Rebecca Jane GRIGGS who died April 1950 in Joplin, Jasper Co MO.

She was the widow of Lee A. GRIGGS and the mother of Ruby born abt 1912. I do not know if she or Lee had been previously married to others or if either had other children.
I think her maiden name was ENGLISH and that she was Rebecca Jane, oldest child of Joseph ENGLISH and Rebecca [WILSON] who lived and died in Benton Co AR.

Joseph ENGLISH's obituary Sep 1925 said he was survived by a son Oliver ENGLISH and a "daughter, Mrs Lee Griggs of Joplin" .
The 1920 and 1930 censuses below are the only "Lee Griggs" I found living in "Joplin" and the wife's given name, age, and birthplace matches too.

1920 Jasper Co MO/Joplin/HH 420-525/pg 158b
Griggs, Lee/HH/wm age 52 TN/Tn/Tn
GRIGGS, Jane/wife/wf age 50 Ar/TX/Ar
Griggs, Ruby M/dtr/wf age 07 MO/Tn/Ar

1930 Newton Co MO/Granby/HH 63-63/pg 92a/pg 92a
Griggs, Lee A/HH/wm age 64 TN/Tn/TN
GRIGGS, Jane/wife/wf age 63 Ar/US/Ar

My heartfelt thanks for this transcription or any additional information on Rebecca Jane's child or children,
