  • Call the newspaper. Sometimes they keep back issues and can give you one.

  • Hmmm...depends on how long the paper makes it available, I guess. They all kind of vary.

    Another thing to try: go to or call the place that distributes the newspaper that it was in and ask for a copy. You'll probably have to pay a couple bucks, but then you'll have the keepsake as well! Good luck!

  • Do you know if any newspapers in her area printed one? Just call them and ask if they can send you a copy. If the newspaper has a website, just look in the archives under "obituaries".

  • Public libraries usually keep copies of newspapers on their computers. Try the library in the town where she was living when she passed.

  • has listings for past obituaries. My DH found one tonight from his step grandfather from last July (07). Or, just enter her name and see if anything pops up from Google.
