The following Obituary graciously shared by Yon Hafer,contributor number 47288192.
Looks like John remarried as apparent from the mention of stepchildren. I looked for a Lilla Colbert and didn't find anything so I checked Lilla Wallace and there she is (#52969419). Her maiden name is Barron and in the 1940 census she's listed as Lilla B. Colbert with John. With this it seems almost certain this is his second wife. Sometimes a wife is buried under her previous married name because the stone was already started though this isn't the case as she has her own. Perhaps she was to be buried WITH her first husband as John was to be buried with his first wife. Anyway, here's his obituary...
