Children with Mildred DOMBAUGH:
Given Mildred's age, it's a near certainty that she and Floyd had no children together.  The question is whether Mildred brought any children with her from her first marriage and, if so, were they adopted by Floyd and, thus, surnamed DECKER?  Unfortunately, I cannot find Mildred in the 1930 census.

In Loving Remembrance
Of my husband Floyd F. Decker's birthday (Deck) who passed away one year ago Jan. 4, 1972, day before his 70th birthday.

But still the vacant chair,
Recalls the love, the voice, the smile,
Of the one who once sat there.

Sadly missed by wife, Mildred.--Ad.
