Title: Re: [nscumber] Obit (2012) - Jean Elizabeth (Lake) Garland
Hi Gerry:

Thank You.

She is indeed d/o James William Lake and Rena Grace Chandler, born 13 Apr 1936.

Jean would be a paternal aunt of Darrell James Lake, whose obit I posted this morning.

When Rena died, her obit made no mention of Jean or her 5 siblings from Rena’s 1st marriage.
