Most of the obituaries in this database were indexed from a collection of newspaper clippings kept by Wilbur Meader, which he donated to the Madison Historical Society, which then was was loaned to the Madison Library for indexing. Obituaries in the Meader collection date from the 1930s through the 2000s. Indexing of the collection was done in 2012-2013 by library volunteer Donna Hartigan. Other obituaries in this database have been indexed by library volunteers using recent clippings from local newspapers. There is more work to be done, let us know if you'd like to volunteer to help with the indexing.
