Obituary Index

This Obituary Index includes information about obituaries from the Mankato Free Press and its predecessor newspapers.  The primary dates for obituaries in the index are: 1869-1879; 1888-1954; 1970-2002, and 2009-2020. 

This index is not complete.  There are some gaps in the indexing and not every obituary was indexed.  If you do not find a name of a Mankato area resident that you expect to find it is still possible an obituary was published in the newspaper.
