Death notices include limited information and are subject to editing to fit within our guidelines. All obituaries must be able to be verified with an official source (funeral home, cremation service, death certificate, anatomy bequest program). Death notices cost $12 when submitted through our submission website If the notice is submitted any other way, this will result in an additional $5 fee. All death notices must be prepaid.

Paid Obituaries

All obituaries are paid advertisements. Obituary charges are based on a per column inch charge. Obituaries submitted via our submission website receive a discounted price. If an obituary is submitted any other way, it will not receive the discounted rate. All obituaries must be prepaid. Obituaries can run an additional time at 50 percent off (as long as it is the same text).
