Current Obituaries

                                April 2021

Here are the obituaries posted for the current month from information provided courtesy of local and area funeral homes and published on their websites.If an obituary is overlooked and it is desired that it be posted, please inform us by email. These obituaries will remain here until new ones from the next month are available for posting. After that, they will be transferred to Obituary Archives . If you have an obituary for a person who has connections with someone or some family in the Frankston-Poynor-LaRue area that you want posted to this month and is not currently posted, please let us know by email . Obituaries selected or submitted should follow a format which is essentially consistent with other obituaries posted and follow standard grammatical style. Through arrangements with funeral homes and/or the families, we will begin publishing pictures with current obituaries. We will add pictures to archived obituaries from the print version of The Citizen newspaper prior to September 2019 when available. Pictures with archived obituaries posted after that will be added in cooperation with funeral homes or on request.  As was the tradition of the Citizen newspaper, obituaries are published at no charge.

(Obituaries listed chronologically by date of death or funeral service.)
