In Reply to: obit lookup, Hillsboro, 1992 for Theda Stokes by Rachel Keller-McGuire of 242

Hi. I'm not related to this family. I'm sorry I did not find an obit for Theda, but I did find her marriage:

Date: 1944-04-09;
Paper: Oregonian

Vancouver Marriage Licenses:

STOKES-DESCHNER - Claude L. Stokes, 45, 5514 N. Missouri, and Theda N. Deschner, 41, 1634 S.E. Hawthorne, both of Portland.

So, this is probably Theda in 1930:

Here is an obit for Theda's mother:

SILVEY - Jan. 16, May C. Silvey of 4848 NE 11th; beloved mother of Theda N. Stokes, Ruby Mae Spencer; grandmother of Eldon Spencer... Interment, Rose City cemetery, EA 4111.

Deschner was NOT Theda's married name. Here she is in 1920:
