Hi Rob -

I can see that your birthdate correction for Ruby Holbrook wasn't accepted because our editors were unable to verify the changed birth year.  Do you have an online source to verify that she was born in 1923?

The same links I provided which indicate no obituary was published and that she died in December 2018 at age 95. One of her brothers was interviewed.
