Called RYG (names more similar than one might think :-0) and he shared contact for another that might know. Waiting to hear back.

Wow, how many RYGs are there in wynewood already? I know one, and it isn't either of you!

Okay, so here's the update...

My BIL spent a long time this morning trying to find the grave, with no success. The cemetery is in a very sorry state, with no section markers or anything of the sort. The person in charge actually came down to help him search, but also said that the sections are basically arbitrary and it's like finding a needle in a haystack. He found the burial record alright, but nothing more than the info we already have.

He found lots of Goldsteins and Ingbers but unfortunately not the one we were looking for.

Hmm... He was at Roosevelt, right?

Did I say something confusing or was it the information?

Please profusely thank your BIL for taking the time to visit in person.

He was here:

I don't know anything about this stuff, but a quick google search brought up these records from Mt Carmel Cemetery in Philadelphia which list a Rae Goldstein that passed away Jan 31 1977 and is buried in SEC G LOT 100 GRAVE 3 of that cemetery. Details are a bit off of what you described but maybe...

Sorry, @Something Fishy , I tried to ping you last night when it looked like he might be headed in the wrong direction.  Does this ping work now?

Get him to join DDF and report back directly. Is @ShvugerFishy available?

If I may, and I understand completely if the mods remove this, we all just got a little glimpse into the life of a Rabbi in a remote town, and it's been awesome to see the DDF community be able to help out. Inasmuch as the challenges for someome living so far are immense, the impact even small contributions can make on such communities is immense too.

As it happens, the Shliach in Fargo is also a "RYG", and I think it would be awesome to continue this chain of helpfulness and kindness by inundating their donate page in honor of DDF.

https://www.jewishnorthdakota.com/templates/articlecco_cdo/aid/4115125/jewish/Donate.htm

Schar Mitzvah Mitzvah, the Schar of a Mitzvah is another Mitzvah! Keep the chain going.

Good shabbos!
