This searchable online obituary index includes death notices from approximately 1950 to about two years ago. Page numbers refer to the Kankakee Daily Journal and its predecessor newspapers. There are also a few items from as early as 1856. However, that data is not complete. 

To search, enter information in either or both fields then press “Search”. To search for a last name only, use the tab key or double-click the last name field to cause the curser to remain in the field. If you would like to request a copy of an obituary, email Carol Zoladz at czoladz@lions-online.org. Please include all available information. If you would like to contribute to this index, email Betty for more information.

On an iPad or iPhone, use the ˅ ˄ buttons at the top of the keyboard to move between fields.
