Marjorie Block Olsen and Jack Olson

Marjorie W. Block (8/21/1921 – 1/26/1992) was born in Chicago, daughter of George Block ( https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=1... ) and Beatrice Davey Block, and apparently died in Dallas TX. On 8/5/1943 in Chicago, she married Jack Henry Olson (6/27/1922 – 4/11/1989), son of Henry Darius Olson ( https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=1... ) and Laura Florence Larsen. Marjorie and Jack had three children, Karen, Gail, and George Olson (George, 5/11/1950 – 1993?). Based on a SS application matching that date of birth and with his right middle name, I would say George was born in Chicago and died 12/7/1995 and that whichever relative gave me his death year was just guessing.

I am trying to find out where Marjorie, Jack, and George Olson are buried. I do have Marjorie's obit and death notice from the Chicago Tribune and it does not mention where she is buried. The obit only mentions a church where a local memorial service was held, probably just a memorial service here for people who knew her, rather than an actual funeral, but I imagine her services were done in a Dallas-area funeral home. I have not been able to obtain a Dallas-area obit for Marjorie yet, and I cannot order a death certificate from TX as I am not a direct relative.

Marjorie apparently died in Dallas county: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JV26-R4M https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VZFZ-TP8 The full date of death for Jack was a little tricky to verify, but it came up in a department of veterans affairs death file.
