Deaths/Services
We request that notices of death come from an official source, such as a funeral home. If provided by a friend or family member, we do require the name of the funeral home or crematorium handling arrangements. Only one notice will be published at no charge for the deceased living in or formerly from our circulation area. Please be sure to include the name of the deceased, date of birth, age, city of residence, when and where he or she died, and the name and city of the funeral home handling the arrangements.

Paid Obituaries
All obituaries are paid advertisements. The charge for obituaries is $15 per column inch and will print in the Wadena PJ and also be posted on the Wadena PJ website. The minimum charge for any obituary is $100. Only photos of the deceased are allowed in an obituary. Obituaries must be prepaid. Obituaries can run an additional time at 50 percent off (within a seven-day period). Those choosing to place the obituary online only will be charged $250.
