I've found that there are sometimes several notices in the newspaper for a death, including the initial notice, funeral notices, and obituaries. This notice appeared in the Celina, OH newspaper on May 9, 1958 for my great-grandfather, Charles Creeden:
Charles Creeden Passes Away
Charles Creeden, retired postmaster of Celina, died at 12:15 p.m. today, at Gibbons Hospital.
Funeral services are incomplete, but the body was removed to Dick & Stallter Funeral Home. Further details will be published tomorrow.
