I have searched http://more.ppld.org:8080/SpecialCollections/index/article_search.asp for Elizabeth A Stewart’s free obituary and found this one below.

Article ID:   580056
Headline:   Elizabeth A. Stewart
Date/Pub/Sec:   11/10/1922, Gazette, 12:2

It may have told me more than the simple one sentence that RJ137 found published on the previous day. The full text was not available so I needed to order it. Unfortunately the Pikes Peak Library District order form requires a PPLD Library Card or a ZIP Code. As I do not live in the USA I can’t fulfill this requirement. 

Some North American libraries offer "Ask A Librarian" services.  You could try contacting the library, explaining that you do not live in the states and would it be possible to ask for the one obituary lookup.  A number of libraries do not charge a fee for "simple" Ask A Librarian requests; but be careful, some libraries do charge a small fee (I didn't read the small print one time).  ;)  Also, it wouldn't hurt to explain a wee bit about why the obituary could help you.   ;)

I tried to shrink the link for the library, but I can't get it to work.  Once you are on the Pikes Peak library site, if you go to "Contact Us" you can submit your question.  Hopefully, you will not need a library card to ask a question!

I am in the US, so if all they need is a zip code, I could request it.

Shellyesq,

Thank you so much for ordering the obituary for Elizabeth A Stewart for me. I am really looking forward to hearing from you (in about a week the library said) as to what information about her was included.

Kind regards,

KiwiRose.
