We have a contact in our database that is now deceased. We would like to maintain their historical records for archival use, but want to ensure that we stop sending mailings.

How do I identify someone in CiviCRM as being deceased?

Inside a contact, under demographics (gender, age, etc.) when you choose "Edit demographics" there's an option for "Contact is deceased".

As well as what RayWright said, if you're using 4.4 or below you might like to try this extension: https://civicrm.org/extensions/show-contact-deceased
