The Hope Star-Journal had an annual tradition of publishing a complete list of Hope-area deaths at the end of each year. Although we do not receive as many obituaries here at HSJ Online as the print newspaper did, we have tried to recreate such a list here for the first time.

Our sympathies go out to the families and friends of those who lost loved ones in the past year.

If you know of someone who is not on the list, but should be, please contact us at and we will add to the list.
