Welcome to the new version of, a website that features obituaries for Ohioans and former Ohioans and essays that are obits- and/or Ohio-related, will cease to exist in May 2010, only a year after the website's birth.

But its mission will continue.

Many of the featured obits, "Dash Between" columns and "In Remembrances" will be moved to this new ObitsOhio blog -- -- between now and's demise.

Obits and essays written between now and May 1, 2010, will be posted on and later moved to this blog, so the entries are maintained in chronological order.

We hope you will visit this blog often.
