Looking for a 1985 Obituary

Looking for a 1985 Obituary

I am helping a co-worker find a few obituaries; this one in particular is for Charles Stewart O'Neill who passed away on January 21st, 1985. He is buried at Roselawn Memorial Park.
In an index I found that two obituaries were published for him: one in "State Times" on January 22nd and another in "Morning Advocate" on January 23rd.

It would mean a lot to have this located! I'm not sure where (or if) I can access Louisiana newspaper archives for these publications, so thank you for any assistance! Greatly appreciated.

Oh my goodness! Thank you very much.

I had completely forgotten about GenealogyBank, I imagine the website is worth the subscription! I will have to look into that.

Charles had two siblings who may have had obituaries published in the same paper. If you find the time, it would be great to see if these exist as well:
- Kathleen Elizabeth Owen (O'Neill), passed away on July 11th, 1997
- John Carroll O'Neill, passed away on December 15th, 1969

Thank you again, Barbara. People like you make genealogy such an enriching experience.

You're welcome, and that was a sweet thing to say.

I checked for his siblings, but neither shows up on GenealogyBank. There is an online obituary index for BR that covers 1969, but John isn't listed in that either.

Have you found them on Find a Grave? They're both buried in Mobile, AL.
