I had written about my maternal great-grand aunt, Theresa (Duper) Engstrom who was born in NY then moved down to Florida with her family.
I finally ordered a copy of her death certificate. I already knew when and where she died but I was curious about the informant. I wondered if it might be her daughter, Violet and if so then I would get Violet's last name if she married.
I received the death record and couldn't wait to open the envelope. I was a bit disappointed to find the informant listed as Records of Villa Maria which was her last residence and her place of death. Theresa Engstrom died on November 16, 1995 at 2:15pm at the Villa Maria Nursing Center which was a nursing home in Miami, FL. She was 93 years old. There was no burial, she was cremated.
Goodbye Aunt Tessie.
