I FOUND FLORENCE'S OBITUARY! NEW YORK TIMES

I have the link, it says you have to pay $3.95 to download the pdf from them as it is not free.
It is the first one on this page!

RE: Florence Weeks
I saw that they were living in New York City in the 1940 census but I don't know where they were living in the 1950's when they died. I have not come across any NY obituaries for them. Perhaps they were living in New Jersey where Florence grew up? I will try to see if there are any sites that offer NJ historical newspapers online.

They are buried with George's family including his father Rev George Edgar Weeks, his sister Nellie Louise Weeks, his grandfather George Weeks, grandmother Julia W. Titus Weeks, and I guess his aunts Georgeana Weeks, and Mary Lillia Weeks.

RE: Weeks
You are very welcome Robbie! Is there anything in particular that you are interested in finding out? I could try to research them some more. Considering their social status I would think there would be some sort of obituary on them perhaps giving more information on their lives.

Hello Robbie,

I photographed the graves of George and Florence Weeks and understand that you are interested in researching their past. I was able to find their engagement announcement in the New York Times dated June 21, 1920 and thought that you might be interested in reading it. Here is a link to the article: http://query.nytimes.com/mem/archive-free/pdf?res=FB0B1EF9385E157A93C3AB178DD85F448285F9
