I have been doing some research for someone else on the Green/sleeper family.

In Feb. 24, 1951 Star Beacon is the following:
Funeral services for Mrs. Myrtle Sleeper, 1225 Lake Ave., who died Tuesday at Longview Hospital, were held Friday afternoon at Zaback Funeral Home. Rev. J. M. Bentley of the Church of God officiated at the services and interment was in the family lot in Saybrook Cemetery.
Mrs. Doris Eichorn was soloist, accompanied by Mrs. Edwin Vettel, organist.
Pallbearers were Stanley Pukelis (note different spelling), John Pierce Jr., John Adams, Gilbert Parrish, Boyd Boyer and Lorin Forsberg.
Among those attending the services from out of town were Mrs. Tom Parrish and daughter and Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Parrish, Painesville; Mrs. Anthony Dinardo, Erie; Mr. and Mrs. Donald Green, Conneaut and Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Pukelis, Rome.
I also have obits for Irvin Sleeper, Myrtle's husband, John Green, Myrtle's dad and Julius Beckwith (Anna's second husband). The month Anna died, the microfilm is lost from the library so I was unable to get her obit.
