Master Obituary List

These pages list all the obituaries that have been published in The Astoria Argus-Searchlight and The Astoria South Fulton Argus since 1914. (The name of the publication changed from The Astoria Argus-Searchlight to The Astoria South Fulton Argus beginning with the issue published on Nov. 13, 1974.) Information included in this list is name, including maiden and multiple married names if applicable, date of death, age at death and residence if given. You can use the list to figure out roughly the issue of the Argus in which the obituary appeared.

Item of note: There are a number of local towns — such as Vermont, Cuba, Tennessee, Washington — that may appear to be states or countries to a researcher not familiar with the area. In this index, place names are assumed to be in Illinois unless otherwise noted.

Please note that obituaries are only indexed on these lists according to the surname at the time of death. We are in the process of indexing all the surnames on their own lists, but this project is not fully completed yet. If you are searching for a particular obituary and having trouble finding it, please feel free to e-mail us at argus@kkspc.com and we can look it up for you.

We are in the midst of the long project of posting full obituaries online. So far we have only completed 1998 to the present. Click HERE to see how to access older obituaries.
