    Notes 
    • RJCarr, 02 Mar 2021; Wilma Jean Prater was mentioned in Alfred Alvin Howard's obituary as his "life partner." No marriage certificate reflects a more legal binding. Curiously, when Wilma married China Gorman Washburn in December 1967 (when she was 34 years old) her name as entered on the record as Wilma Jean Howard - perhaps coincidental, perhaps not.

      LScottCarr noted that Alfred worked the night shift at Lockheed-Martin which may be where he met Wilma. According to her son, Mike Mashburn in his eulogy for Wilma, she began her 42-years with Lockheed-Martin when it was originally called Temco.
