Can anyone see this archived Legacy obituary? She was my oldest friend, passed away in 2007. I made her a find a grave; would love to be able to read it so I can add more to her bio.

I don’t have a Legacy subscription but if you ask in most any of the Facebook genealogy groups, someone is bound to have access and grab it for you.

Since Legacy wanted a sponsorship to pull it up, I don’t think it an be accessed on the internet, without paying.

You have the date and a newspaper, if you go to your local library they should be able to help you access the microfilm and print a copy. There will be a small charge for printing.

They might have to order the film, so it might take a couple of days.

It also looks like it’s a very small obit. The link you have on the Findagrave says it’s only 80 words.

Thanks so much! I had a feeling that's about what it would say but was hoping for a little more. I added it to her find a grave. I'm clueless why they didn't mention her 2nd husband.

I’ve found, if there is no mention of a husband, it signifies divorce. When a cousin died, the obit mentioned all her kids with hubby #1 name and married names, as in Dawn Marie Smith Robbins (David), and her deceased 2nd husband who was the love of her life.

Hubby#1, the rat, wasn’t mentioned at all.

I'll have to ask her daughter who wrote it, it's possible it came from her mother. I assume it did because the brother is mentioned, her daughter may not have thought to mention him.

Do you have a library card? Most libraries (at least where I live - and work as a librarian) have subscriptions to Ancestry or other genealogical databases, which give you full access to obituary and death records. If worst comes to worst, contact the library in the city where they passed away, and they should be able to access local papers. I used to work at the Napa CA library, and this was part of my job there! We had newspapers on microfilm dating back to the mid-19th Century, and would get frequent requests to search them for obituaries.

*For future reference, or if you want more information that wasn't already found.
