    I believe this is Reid Scott’s maternal grandmothers obituary
    Please confirm but I believe Shirley LaPoint’s parents were Israel Lapoint (1890-1970) and Aurelia Sansouci (1890), both from NY and even with the Italian sounding last name of the mother both were of French Canadian ancestry. (Israel LaPoint) (Aurelia Sansouci)…. If correct I can go into further detail
