DOOR COUNTY OBITUARIES-2011

w/No Cemetery listed or Out of Town Cemetery

updated 18 Apr 2011


 

This is the 2011 alphabetical listing of extractions of Obituaries that the PGS has gleaned from newspaper and funeral home obituaries 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.

 

For Door County Newspaper and Funeral Home Obituaries for those persons who have passed in 2010 and before that year and have no cemetery listed or are out of town cemeteries, please go to the additional page: Door County OBITUARIES-2010 & Before.
