Barry County
Missouri, USA
Death: Dec. 30, 1940

While the gravestone states the date of death as Dec 29, 1940, the Missouri Death Certificate states Dec 30, 1940. Last day seen alive was Dec. 29, estimated death the next day (30th) at approximately 1 am

In addition, Katherine should most likely have been spelled Catherine, although she used the nickname of Kate.
