Looking for Mabel Elizabeth Turner, married Ben Reuland & Ivan Self in Illinois in 1940's

+6 votes
I don't have information on her birth or death dates or locations. She lived in Aurora, Kane County, Illinois in 1940's. Married Bernard Nicholas (Ben) Reuland in 1942 and then Ivan B Self in 1947. Cannot find her after that.

Here's possible references in 1959. newspapers.com articles from 1959 in Galesburg Illinois notes the following;

1959-Jun-30. "Mr. and Mrs. Robert Finn and children of Chicago are visiting his mother, Mrs. Albin Gulstrand.   Other visitors are Mr. and Mrs. Ivan Self of Aurora."


1959-Jul-09. "Mr, and Mrs. Ivan Self and two sons, have returned to their home in Aurora after a visit to the home of his sister, Mrs. Albin Gulstrand."


1959-Sep-12. "Mr. and Mrs. Ivan Self and sons Robert and Edward of Aurora were weekend guests at the home of Mrs. Albin Gullstrand."


1963-Mar-27. "Mrs. Alta Gullstrand went to Aurora Friday to visit her brother, Ivan Self, over the weekend."


1963-Aug-19. "Ivan Self, Aurora, was a guest at the home of his sister, Mrs. Alta Gullstrand, last week."


This last article is different.  It notes Mr. and Mrs. Ivan Self of Decatur, Alabama being out-of-town guests at the wedding of Toni Shin of Salem, Illinois and David Labrowski of Panama City. Florida.  Is this the same Mr. and Mrs. Ivan?

Cathryn, Thanks for checking. Unfortunately, Ivan remarried in 1952 so the Mr & Mrs in 1959 would have been his 2nd (or 3rd) wife, not Mabel.

Hmmm. Interesting to learn. Did Mabel die or did the couple divorce?  If they divorced, did Mabel keep the name of Self?

I am kin to Ivan B Self of Aurora, IL. He was my father's father's brother and is buried in LaPlata, MO. What info are you looking for?
I would like birth date/ death date & locations for Mabel. Only information I have is her marriage to Bernard (Ben) Reuland in 1942 and marriage to Ivan in 1947. Because she's in my family tree (though briefly) I would like to a least have birth & death information on her. If you have information on her parents or siblings (or children?) I would appreciate that as well. Thanks so much for your help.
