One typo that I noticed from this funeral announcement: Barbara Stern is Joseph’s sister-in-law, not his sister. She never married, and is referred to in her sister’s obituary (Joseph’s wife, Pauline Mary Stern Clausse), as Miss Barbara Stern.

(Joseph Edward [or Edouard] is my great-great-grandfather.)
