The Marion Public Library maintains an obituary file from late 1984 to present, of obituaries published in The Marion Star (The Marion Star is not indexed). Only obituaries for persons with a Marion County connection are contained in this file.
The Marion Public Library's obituary file started in the Reference Department in 1984. Obituaries have been clipped from the Marion Star, mounted on cards, and maintained in a card file since that time. There are approximately 20,000 clipped obituaries in the file.
