Need help on obituaries? Check out our tips sheet on placing obituaries for funeral homes and families

- Obituaries cost $19 per inch as they appear in the printed newspaper.
- Obituaries must be received by 4 p.m. to appear in the next day's newspaper.
- Please ask the funeral home or crematory handling the arrangements to send the information, or be prepared to provide a death certificate as confirmation of death.
- If you see a mistake in an obituary, contact the funeral home. We will not change an obituary without a funeral home's permission.
