Please include the following information in your email:
Once we have received your email with all the information listed above, we will enter the obituary in our system and send you a price quote and a proof of what the obituary will look like in the printed newspaper. At this time, we will work with you to make any changes necessary so that the look and price of the obituary are acceptable to you. Please note that we need to receive payment before the deadline for the date you have selected for the print obituary. We will work with you to ensure you are aware of all deadline dates.
Payments can be made with one of our representatives over the phone. Once you have paid for your obituary, we will send you a receipt, and you can expect to see the obituary posted online and in the edition of the paper you chose.
Before we can publish the obituary, we must verify the passing of the deceased with a licensed party for our records. If you are not working with a funeral home, the name and number of a mortuary, crematorium, or medical donation program will also be sufficient. If you do not have that information, we can also accept a scanned death certificate. The information provided for verification purposes will remain private and will not published in the obituary.
If you would like to print your obituary on any day Tuesday to Friday or in the weekend edition of the paper, we need to receive all obituary information and payment by 10:00 AM CST three working days prior.
