Obituaries & Funeral Notices

    Over 25,000 local obituaries and funeral announcements have been 
pasted on cards by employees and volunteers since the late 1960's. 
These clippings are in
file cabinets and computer files and are photographed and updated every week by employee, Jack Gainer. This list was last updated in Dec 2022
The following obituaries/funeral notices are available for email. The names may be listed several times as the obituary may have been in several different local newspapers. Some maiden names (if known) have parenthesis around them. The year of death follows the name.
