Thanks to Eleanor E. Borkenhagen for these obituaries. Eleanor clips obituaries from the Los Angeles Times and the Orange County Register. As she clips them, Eleanor sorts them by counties and sends them to the genealogical society that has a connection with the person in the obituaries. The following are obituaries that Eleanor found that relate to Fort Collins and various outlying towns.
