Homosassa, FL asked in Family Law, Elder Law and Probate for Illinois

Q: Can you help me find out what happend my Mother ?

I'm retired, and handicapped, living in Florida. Her granddaughter found her obituary on line this week. My mother passed away Sept. 8. She passed away in Great Lakes. None of the family was notified. I can't find out where her personal belongings are or even where she died. The police in North Chicago, can't help because she lived on the naval base.

A: I found the obit. Did you call the funeral home at Seguin and Symonds Funeral Home in Highwood? Somebody paid for the funeral. I am guessing that she got married to someone who lived in Great Lakes. The funeral home usually puts people in touch with each other.
