Cannes, France need info for Charlotte Monod

Washougal, WA, USA
United States
Charlotte MacGregor Todd was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1867, and lived in Wisconsin, Iowa, and Minnesota. Her first marriage failed, and she married a second time in Paris France in 1896 to Hector Lucien Monod who was an artist and art historian. Their youngest son was Jacques Lucien Monod, who was active for the French Resistance in WWII, and won a Nobel Prize for science in 1965. A lot of online accounts have Charlotte's maiden name wrong with MacGregor as the last name instead of Todd. I did find the Paris marriage information with the correct name as Todd.

I'm hoping to find death information for Charlotte. I believe she may have died in 1954, probably at Cannes, France where the family had a home. I was hoping to find an obituary for her. I don't speak French, so don't know how to find such.

Thanks so much Julie!!

I can see the months and years of death for Charlotte and Lucien, but I can't make out the day if it's there? I have poor eyesight. Do you see a day of death on the headstone for them?

I had written the info at findagrave, and am hopeful someone might take a photo of Robert and his wife's grave eventually. Robert was my G Grandmother, Anderson (Todd) McMillan's older brother. So Charlotte, was my Grandfather's first cousin.

Thanks again so much!!
Thanks Julie, just so awesome to have that photo!! That will at least help me to find the months to look for, for an obituary!!

I went to that website, and found what is apparently another photo showing Jacques, Jacques wife and brother's all on what look like steps below the parent's. There's one other in the middle I'm not sure of, perhaps one of Jacuqes' brother's wives?
