    Doris' name and birth date are embossed on a joint gravestone with herhusband Jacob Green, even though they were divorced in 1972, 12 yearsbefore his death.  Doris' side of the grave marker has no date ofdeath, and her date of birth is unreadable on the photo.

    "Jake Green was the son of Walter Jacob Green (1889-1925) and MaggieLee Green (1897-1952). ... His double tombstone is with Doris Green"

    A directory entry for Doris D Mahaffey Green, giving her birth date as1 January 1924.  The P O Box address here is the same as that of JakeGreen's wife on Jake's death certificate.

    A family photo in later life has Doris' name as Doris Ripley.Searching under her name with a Ripley surname, I found her record ofmarriage in Nevada to John Lowe Ripley.  Even though Doris and Jakewere divorced, Doris did not remarry until after Jake Green's death.

    I also found a directory record under the name Doris Deanne Ripley.The record (extracted from a telephone directory or combined sources)reports her biirth date as 17 Jun, but that has been corrected to 1January, matching other records.  Niote that the residence date onthis record under her second married name is the same year as the oneabove  in her first married name.

    I found a Social Security Death Index entry that appeared to be forDoris, but the death date was in1979, and her husband Jake's deathcertificate in 1984 lists his wife Doris Green as the informant.
