DOOR COUNTY OBITUARIES

w/No Cemetery listed or Out of Town Cemetery

updated 5 Jan 2011


 

This is an alphabetical listing of extractions of Obituaries that the PGS has come across that relate to the families of Door County residents that do not have a cemetery listed and that we were unable to link to a cemetery in the county using our PGS Cemetery Indexes, or because they are buried somewhere other than Door County.

 

Some Brown and Kewaunee residents are included as well because the family surname is also found in Door County.

 

If anyone would like to have or has come across an OBIT that you would like to contribute, please contact us at: pengensoc@yahoo.com.
