Hello, If you cannot get a volunteer to get the obit, you can contact the Bureau County Genealogical Society - http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ilbcgs/
They have all of their county newspapers indexed and archive the microfilm of the newspapers. They are very helpful and accommodating people.
Best of Luck,
