You would need first to know where the death occurred in Oklahoma. I would first write for a copy of the death certificate to the
Vital Records Section State Dept of Health
P O Box 53551
Oklahoma City, OK 73152
Check made payable to Oklahoma State Department of Health
Fee was $5.00 but call 405.271.4040 for current fee.
They may also have a specific form which they require to be used in requesting vital information. Ask about that when you call. Then write either the Library of that town where the death occurred, they probably have copies
or the Newspaper or write the Newspaper itself, if it is a small town you may have to decide a larger town where paper would have been printed. Since you will have the actual death date from the certificate the Obituary should be in the following 1st or 2nd issue from that date. The name of the Funeral Home will also be on the Certificate of Death and probably 99% of them cut out the obituary and place it in the Funeral Home file on that person. Try that..
Without a actual Date and Location you are out of luck. I don't think you would find anyone willing to search through a years worth of papers for an obituary.
