Rittman tackles task of organizing obit treasures

 SHEPHERDSVILLE - An obituary can be as important to a person’s history as any other document.

The Bullitt County History Museum believes that, collecting as many obituaries as possible for their records.

Now, thanks to volunteer Brenda Rittman, that information is available on the museum’s computer database.

For over three years Rittman has single-handedly gone through more than 13,000 obituaries for the database, dating back to the 1940s.
