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. Death notices are free as long as they are submitted through our submission website If the notice is submitted any other way, this will result in a $5 fee.
