ESTELLE FRATUS - DENNIS - Has now been found ....tks

Looking for any info pertaining to the death of a g/aunt from Australia - Estelle Fratus vaudeville performer in the USA during the 1920-35

She travelled to USA marring Carl Denny Dennis enroute 1927 in Hawaii. She performed on vaudeville as dancer/comedian with Earl Carrolls Vanities during the 1920-30s. Moving onto performing with Henry Santrey & Soliders of Fortune 1930-35. I have located numerous newspaper articles of her performances under her maiden name - which indicates she was doing well, even a plug from Walter Winchell, calling her "The Star from Down Under".

Unfortunately at the peak of her career she died 7th march 1940. I have been able to find two memoriums from her husband in the Variety Magazines indicating her date of deatch but unable to discover exactly what state she died in and is now buried. Not sure if she was buried under FRATUS or DENNIS. Have been searching high and low.

Would appreciated any help or advice.
Regards
Laurin
