Dear redemcdermo-ga,
I can refer you to a Chicago newspaper which has a 110 word obituary
for Patrica A Green and a 208 word obituary for Mildred Alice Arch.
Both are dated 13 August 2004. Unfortunately, you will have to pay
$2.50 for each of the articles. It requires registration on the site
but no other costs. Would a link to the news database and full
instructions on how to search for articles answer your question?

obituaries.  I believe they are short enough that posting them here
would be considered fair-use.

Get me the obituary for Patricia Arch Green only and I will gladly pay
the $2.50.  I was using the mother's obituary for reference point,
only.  I do not need to see Mrs. Arch's obit.
