The obituary index at Benson Memorial Library has historically been handwritten on index cards. Since 2015, we have been manually entering the content of these cards into a Google Spreadsheet. Each letter is a different sheet (26 total) and alphabetized by surname. The spreadsheet can be searched by pressing CTRL+F and searching the desired name. If you find an inaccuracy, please email Jessica Hilburn at firstname.lastname@example.org so she can remedy it!
Entries are continuously updated and new obituaries are added every day.
