Friday's Photo: Charles and Helen Driscoll Staubach are buried in Old Saint Raymond's Cemetery

In 2012, I visited Old Saint Raymond's Cemetery with my husband and his sister.  Our goal was to find the graves of Charles and Helen Staubach, maternal grandparents of my husband and his siblings. And, to find the grave of Julia Harvey Glynn, my great-great-grandmother who I wrote about last week

We found Charles Staubach quickly in section 15, but although they were buried in the same plot, his wife's name was not on the stone.  Helen Driscoll Staubach died in 1965. Her daughter, Doris, was living with her husband, an army officer, and five young children in France. She came home alone to arrange her mother's funeral and burial. She may not have had the time or money to arrange to have her mother's name added to the stone.

of Bertha Driscoll Cacavvo, sister of Helen. The woman on
the steps might be Helen Driscoll Staubach. 

Doris Staubach Quinn, my mother-in-law, gave me the funeral documentation for her mother and father when she requested I find out more about her family. From these, I learned death dates, cemetery locations, addresses, and names of newspapers where an obituary or death notice might be found. I am adding the documents to share with family.
