Roy's burial is not with wife, Edith: See Edith's cemetery marker of Roy Scherer's 3rd spouse it is a dual marker: Burial site of Raymond Harold "Roy" Scherer, Sr. is not with his last wife Edith cemetery record confirmation.

Roy is buried in Grants Pass, Josephine County, Oregon. Testimony indicated Roy was cared for at end of life when wife died. I believe Roy's adopted daughter was the final caregiver and made local funeral arrangements in Oregon.

Roy Sr's latest 3rd wife is Edith Belle Willette, she had a daughter from her first marriage her name is Edith "Jr" Grace Gasser. She is in the bottom photo with Rock Hudson at his changing room at the Fox Theater in Detroit during a play. They look like step kids grown up? Rock was in his last years as he was losing weight.

From the daughter of the red shirt woman in one of the posted photos: "Now on to the picture of my mom in the red shirt "Jr" Edith Grace Gasser and Rock, he was in town at the Detroit Fox Theater doing a play and he sent my mother tickets and they with my mom and half sister Pat went backstage to meet him. So the room with the his name on the door was his dressing room. From B. See other photo of sister Pat.

Rock Hudson in the bottom photo with his biological father Roy's step daughter Edith Grace Gasser. Her mother Edith Willette "Scherer" is in the top photo with Rock's biological father Roy and they both look happy and well together.

Photo is verified by historical images as being the correct estate. The flower pot pillars are verified as parts of property. Even the growth and type of planted flowers were
considered true.

Edith's and Roy's image is verified by their family of the 3rd wife Edith Grace Gasser (Scherer).

Rock Hudson's father Roy Harold Scherer Sr. 2nd wife was Florence Alice Palmer. They were married 28 Aug 1933 in Los Angeles, California, USA., Their daughter was Alice Maria Scherer, born in abt 1945. Alice is Rock Hudson half sister. I have pictures and letter that Florence sent when she would write to my mother. I see in 1948 it showed they lived together in CA.
