A few years ago Crawford County coordinators were given several thousand obituaries that were saved by Mrs. Lucinda Wigg in
Schleswig and her mother over about a 50 year period. A Crawford IAGenWeb volunteer and relative of Mrs. Wigg, Joyce Heide, literally saved them from the trash bin after Mrs. Wigg died. Joyce spent more than a year going through them and grouping them alphabetically in large bundles and then graciously offered them to Crawford County. Bob Kuehl shared those individuals with a Shelby County connection. Those were added to the below and their scanned obituary is linked.
The obituaries below were posted to the Rootsweb Obituary board and other sources. They were posted by volunteers from public sources with permission and made available below by Denise Wurner. Beginning with Second Quarter 2010 they include the names of the original posters to Rootsweb's site. Rootsweb is no longer being used to post obituaries, however. Obituaries are only being added to Shelby IAGenWeb via IAGenWeb's Obituary Boards and the Buman Obituary Collection (above). Please use the site-wide search engine to search for the obituary of a specific individual.
