Index to Obituaries - Newspaper and Funeral Home Abbreviations

Where possible, the listing includes a city.  The city does not necessarily reflect the place of death but usually the residence.  If no city is listed then most likely the death occurred in the city where the newspaper is published.  Example:  “SR,” would be Hot Springs.
