West Michigan Conference

Roll of Deceased Members

(Based on the list published in the Detroit Conference journal for 1941, pp. 352-353; but corrected by the archives staff based on information from the Methodist Protestant journals and other sources.  This is not a complete list of Methodist Protestant ministers in Western Michigan – it appears to cover only those whose deaths were mentioned in the annual conference journals.)  See also the separate list for the Michigan Conference.
