Obituaries from the Lebanon Daily News: Volume XI
1900-Present


This file, Volume XI, now contains 573 obituaries. Other volumes are available on the LDN Obits main page.

Please be patient while file loads.

This is a raw, unsorted, and unalphabetized file of obituary listings mainly from the Lebanon Daily News. Due to time constraints, I was unable to alphabetize this file.

To navigate throughout this page, use the Find option found in the edit menu. This will allow you to find all listed instances of the name/surname you are searching for.

As I add more obits to this file, I will always drop them in at the top. This will aid returnees to this site from having to again browse the entire file. Note: I have these files listed as obituaries, but interspersed amongst the obits are; some funeral notices and also some funeral services. The notices and services many times contain information that is helpful to many researchers. In research there is no such thing as "too much information".

Many listings are connected to my family files, which are: Kindt, Copenhaver, Gettle, & McKinney.

I wanted to list it here because I remembered this man, and knew him, I believe it was in high school.)...... Robert L. Baeshore (Bob) May 7, 1931 - January 22, 2009 Bob was born in Lebanon, Pennsylvania and that is where he kept his heart even until the day he died. He will be dearly missed by his wife, Donna and his daughters, Susan and Cathy. His favorite sister, Emma, survives him and will miss him too. Bob loved music of all kinds, and wherever there was music, he would be dancing or tapping his feet. He taught Susan to dance at 14, and he took Cathy to all of her high school football games when she was young. He was a special man, a special husband, a special father. He was not a man of many words, but he knew how to have a good time, to laugh, to enjoy life. He will be missed every day and no words can describe how much he was and will always be loved. The family will hold a private celebration of his life. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to The Larry D. Large Foundation, 2470 W. Majestic Parkway, Suite 120, Tucson, AZ 85705.
