"Gone But Not Forgotten"

Original Listing March 2, 2007, submitted by Rosa Cline

Updated August 1, 2009



This is a listing I have made from obits that I have saved that I have gotten from various Arkansas newspapers. In these obits it specifically says “Celebration of LIfe” and nothing else about a funeral, cremation, or anything else pertaining to a burial. If you know anything more about the below people contact me and I’ll move their data to a listing for a “rightful” resting place for them.


If you see anyone that I have an obit for and would like a copy, I will be happy to share that with you or you share extra data please feel free to contact me. However, please have the respect to not contact me to complain when I don’t have what you request.  I will be trying to update this listing as I have time for, and when I do I will put an “*” beside the newest data entered. I also try and not list anyone that their death is more recent than 6 mths or so, unless I personally knew them. Out of respect for them and their family I try and wait half a year for their mourning process. So most “new” deaths will not be listed. 


I will try and place an * beside the name in my alphabetical listing at the front of the transcriptions listed below. On the ones with a * that means that they are a new listing to this list, or I’ve added in some new data.


I hope this listing helps these people to always be remembered. To try and help folks to always be remembered when they have gone on before us is the main reason I do what I do. And helping folks find family or friends in the process is a good plus as well.
