Dorothy June Smith born 1916 in MN? [closed]

+2 votes
My great grandmother Dorothy June Smith, married Racette, is a mystery to my family. It does not help that it is a common name. Yet I seem not able to find data on her or her family besides my Racette line. My father said something about the surname Gibbs. For sure I know she lived in Minnesota all her life.

Any help would be appercated.

Note: I found her mother's maiden name Bromes in the Minnesota Birth Index. Born 25 Jun 1916 in Hennepin county of Minnesota.

This is a long shot by any means, was the mother  possibly Bromell?

Maybe I had the wrong Dorothy Smith. Yours would have a "J." middle initial.
