Deceased nonmember spouse

Postby bgille » Fri Nov 06, 2015 1:32 pm

We have a member whose nonmember spouse passed away. How do we indicate that so that the ward list no longer shows the deceased spouse in the ward list?

I know this sounds cold: Cancel the marriage. Reason: death.

In a year's time, they can take the name to the temple and be sealed. But for now, the survivor is single.

Or you could send a message through MLS and have headquarters update the record, especially if you have death date and place information.
