- If you go to that same website (State of Missouri's website; Secretary
of State Office) you should find another search engine for death
certificates after 1961. I have had so-so luck with it.
You can always write to the County offices for the county that your
grandmother passed away in to find where & how much a copy of the
death certificate costs (varies) They usually give you a choice
between certified and uncertified (with certified costing more).
Certified copies are more for relatives who need to "prove" someone
died (like for will readings, etc.). Save yourself some money and
just get the uncertified copy.
As for the obituary notice, you would have to contact the area paper
for where grandmother died BUT most do not have the
resources/patience/time to get you a copy. I have better luck at the
universities, local libraries or even a local genealogy club...they
usually have newspapers on microfilm or will look into it for you and
for a small fee, send you a copy. I have also managed to find some
obituaries on ancestory.com (they have a link for newspapers and have
added quite a few recently; searchable by name, place, etc.). You may
even try to google the newspaper's name and see if they have their
archives on the net (doubtful...but try everything you can...)
Good luck...hope this gives you some more ideas.
