She is not named as a survivor in her father's 1937 obituary or her mother's 1951 obituary, but because of her lack of contact with the family that is no indication whether she was still living at that time. In 1975 the District Court of Navarro County, Texas declared her dead, allowing payment of a small amount to be passed to her heirs for condemnation of right-of-way for Interstate 45 that had been tied up since 1956.4,5,6,7
