I'm looking for an obit for Ima M Williams. Her date of birth was 9/5/1917 and date of death was 12/15/1996. Her husband was Curtis R Williams but not sure if he survived her or not. I really appreciate your help!

Thank you!!

Thank you kindly. Was hoping her obit would indicate where she was buried.

Your help is very much appreciated!

There aren't that many funeral homes in the Gainesville area. I would suggest using Google to get their names and phone numbers, and calling them to see if they handled your family member's funeral.

Likewise, check with some of the larger cemeteries: e.g., Forest Meadows, Evergreen.

Finally, Jim Powell and a wonderful group of volunteers are working hard at surveying all of the cemeteries in Alachua County. Check out his website:

Good luck!

You might consider requesting a death certificate. About $5.00. Unless cremated or buried out of state a funeral home and cemetery should be listed there
Good Hunting
In searching I located no public records for her or associated names.
