Recently been called to membership clerk and cleaning up some records of unknown people/addresses/etc. We came across 3 members that have passed away but do not know their dates. Their old neighbors, friends, etc do not know the actual date other than a few years ago. How does this get recorded?

You can also check the Social Security Death Index.
Ask the family history leaders. They can help.

If the Family history specialists are not able to find them you can go down to the county clerks office and get a informational copy of the death certificate. Unfortunately, this method cost a fee. We had to do this for several records, but the ward is now much more motivated to keep up on deceased members especially when they saw the cost involved.
