Note: in the 1934 Kansas City, Missouri City directory Charles J Patke 1934 • Kansas City, Missouri, USA clerk, Sherman Hotel res 905 Locust

31 January 1943 Charles John Patke dies , on death certificate his wife Florence was living at the same address, she is the informant.

The Kansas City Star. Feb 1, 1943 Patke, Charles John, age 60, 3208 E 7th, passed away Jan. 31, 1943. He is survived by his wife Mrs. Florence Patke of the home, mother Mrs. J. M Patke and one sister Mrs. Ray Boneau both of St. Louis, MO. Blackman Guardian Home

Charles is buried 3 Feb 1943 • Leavenworth, Leavenworth, Kansas, USA Patke, Charles J, d. 01/31/1943, Plot: 32 28 24, bur. 02/03/1943 Leavenworth National Cemetery Leavenworth, Leavenworth County, Kansas I have called the cemetery his wife Florence is not there.

SO if this is the same Florence, I cant find now when and where she died.

If this is a different Florence born 1894 Arkansas, I now have two missing Florence's in death?

I have located a grand daughter of a sister of Charles John Patke, they are almost certain this is the same Florence. But no proof.
