Thornton - How get Obits?

Where do I find a Love Co., OK obituary?
My grandmother's grandmother was Martha Ann (Pipkin) Thornton who died in Marietta 3 Oct 1920. She's buried there. I am hoping there was a write up - would give me some clues about what happened to the rest of her family.

Her husband was Green Granberry Thornton (b.1836 GA) - they married in Barbour Co., AL in 1857 - moved to Tarrant Co., TX after war. 1890's in Cooke Co., TX. He died around 1893 in TX or OK, not sure.)

The children:
--My gr grandmother was Ella Evelyn Thornton (b. 1877 Tarrant Co., TX) who married Will Thompson in 1895 - divorced in Marietta in 1910. Can't find her in 1920 census.
--Mary Frances Thornton married Jim Rose. They lived many years in Marietta. But I don't know where she was in 1920.
--William D. Thornton lived out of town - married a Chickasaw girl named Carrie. Lost track of them in 1920.
--Also a sister Euphemia, rumored to have married a governor of OK. May be a family tale - but I'd like to find her too in 1920.

Any ideas on Thornton or how to find a Marietta Obit would be appreciated.
