Not sure if burial is with Edith: See Edith's cemetery marker of Roy Scherer's 3rd spouse it is a dual marker: Not sure if burial site of Raymond Harold "Roy" Scherer, Sr. is with his last wife Edith contact the cemetery for confirmation.

Roy Sr's 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 the photo: "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.

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.
