Marge (Widow of Robert "Bullets" Sheppard)

Please help me find Marge!

My great uncle is dying and wishes to be buried with his brother, Bullets. Robert "Bullets" Sheppard died in a jeep accident during WWII. Shortly before Bullets died, he married Marge. When he died a plot was reserved for Marge next to Bullets. Now all these years later, we believe Marge may have passed away and is buried somewhere else. If it is so, my great uncle would like to have her plot, but we must find Marge!

This is all I know...

My dying great uncle, Lionel "Enun" Sheppard, believes Marge's maiden name is Schuck and that she was from Ames, Iowa. He believes she never remarried. I have contacted every cemetery in Ames and can find no record of a Marge Sheppard.

Before Bullets died, Bullets and Marge posed for this photo: http://familyimages.photosite.com/SheppardFamily/SheppardFamily1940s/Bullets1.html

Bullet wrote his sister Alice "Shoody" Sheppard Dennis (my grandmother) about his marriage to Marge -> http://familyimages.photosite.com/SheppardFamily/SheppardFamily1940s/Bullets2.html

http://familyimages.photosite.com/SheppardFamily/SheppardFamily1940s/Bullets3.html

That letter was addressed from Seattle, Washington

Marge contacted the Sheppard Family is St. Paul, Minnesota in 1978. At the time, her address was Santa Monica, California and her surname was still Sheppard -> http://familyimages.photosite.com/SheppardFamily/SheppardFamily1960sAndLater/ToShoodyFromTena1978.html

I have tried the Santa Monica area and a reverse address lookup, but I cannot locate Marge.

Can anyone help with this mystery?

Thank you!

Sandy Dennis
