There is a Random Acts Genealogical Kindness (www.raogk.org, choose Oregon, choose Coos County) volunteer who will look up an obituary.
You can use the Oregon Library System, www.oregonlibraries.net/ choose Coos County. They charge from $5 to $15/obit.
Or there is the University of Oregon, http://libweb.uoregon.edu/general/gethelp.htm/http://libweb.uoregon.edu/general/gethelp.htm/ who charges $30/hr for research with a $7.50 minimum which is what it cost me for the last obit I requested. Successful Hunting!
