      It appears Eunice Marie Dally was married three times. The marriage record of her 1949 marriage to Arthur J. Gray [below] gives her name as Mrs. Maree D. Armstrong and lists her as divorced. By 1953 she was married to Richard Przybylski and gave birth to a son, Richard Albert Przybylski on 26 Nov 1953. - [Thurmon King]

      It appears that Maree D. Przybylski fudged on her birth year. Her birth record gives her birth date as 18 Sep 1925 and she was listed in the 1940 census as age 14. - [Thurmon King]

      ------
      On 25 May 2022, Martin Price sent the following to Ted Smith:

      There is a reason why her DOB is listed as 1931 when she was born in 1925 and after her father passed away in 1927.

      She was in a relationship with a guy named Joe Smith for the last 7 years of her life. I was there when they met in 1972. Turned out Joe was born on 9/9/1931 and when he told my mother that was his birthday, she lied to him and told him that she was born 9 days later on 9/18/1931. Then she later told all of us to never tell Joe how old she really was.

      When she passed away in 1979, it turned out that Joe never found out how old she really was. Joe, Rick and I went together to the funeral home and the first question was, "what was her date of birth?" Joe said, "September 18, 1931". Rick and I looked at each other as if to ask, should we tell them? Then after a couple of seconds, we agreed, without saying anything, just thru eye contact and expression, not to say anything.

      So her death certificate and the plaque on her crypt says she was born on her 6th birthday which, I'm sure, she would have been quite pleased with

      By the way, every woman that I have ever told that story to loves it! Our mother is their hero!

      Martin
