Richard says his sister may know when their grandmother Frieda died -- Richard did not have much contact with any Procuniers growing up, as his mothers family dominated and his father was mostly estranged from his relatives.  He was a pioneer with my mom in a traveling TV demonstration to world fairs etc. which he ran during the depression until Richard was born ( Richard said he was conceived in San Diego and born in Dallas at expositions before returning to Chicago).
