Obit for Virginia Lee (Unsell) McNabb

Classification: Query
Surnames: Unsell McNabb Graham Sharp Dobson Harbison
Is there a volunteer available to look for an obit for me? I am researching the following person as a descendant of my Harbison family:

Virginia Lee Unsell
b. 28 Jul 1922 in Oklahoma
d. 18 Mar 1988 in Wilbarger Co., TX
m. abt 1948, David Henry McNabb (1916-1993)

I'm interested to see if her mother's name is listed. I know her mother was Flora Rowena Graham (b. abt 1906 in OK), daughter of Thomas E. Graham and Ivory Alice Cathey. Rowena married (1) Sam Houston Unsell abt 1922 and they had Virginia (while they are living in Pontotoc Co., OK). They apparently divorced by 1927, when Rowena married R.L. Sharp (in Pottawatomie Co., OK) and Houston Unsell married Bobbie Dobson (probably in Pontotoc Co., OK).

Rowena was in the Pontotoc Co., OK area until the 1930 census, where she and daughter Virginia are found with her parents and maternal grandmother. She is listed as age 24 and a widow. I assume she would have married again but can't find anything on her after the 1930 census. I'm hoping her name will be mentioned in Virginia's obituary.

Thanks in advance!
