Abbott Memorial Library

Obituary Database

Welcome to the Dexter, Maine Obituary Database. This site provides an index and scanned obituaries for residents of the town of Dexter. Obituaries included are for persons who were born, resided, or otherwise had a strong Dexter connection. The years 1944 up to the present have been scanned. Most of the obituaries were scanned from the local newspaper, The Eastern Gazette, unless otherwise noted.

Beginning in 2003, we will begin scanning obituaries from 1900 through 1943.

This project was partially funded by a New Century Grant from the Maine State Library. The database is maintained by the Abbott Memorial Library, One Church Street, Dexter, ME, 04930

Three search options are available:

View by Death Date
Choose the year of death and an alphabetical listing of all the obituaries in that year will be available.

note: if the complete death date is unknown, use the Search option below

View by Last Name
choose from the alphabetical list (A-Z)

first names, last names, dates, or other terms that may have been mentioned in the obituary.

note: if you are unable to find a complete name, ex. Sarah Jones Smith, search only one name: Smith, Jones, or Sarah. Also, spellings have to be exactly as found in the obituary -- ex. if no matches are found for Mt. Pleasant Cemetery, try Mount Pleasant Cemetery or St. Ann's/St.Anne's/Saint Anne's
