Not much is known about my grandpa's little sister. I think she was born around 1907 (approximately). She took off to Indianapolis and lived on her own, never marrying (for certain reasons). I found enough to know that she died in February of 1988 but not where she is buried or anything else (other than it was in Indiana). Any help is appreciated.

Thank you! I'm without my Ancestry account at the moment so I'm unable to view but will when I can. Can you tell me if there's any cemetery information? I've tried but can only find another Dorothy born/died the same year but not the same person.
