Obituary Policy

A typical obituary fits within a maximum of 24 column inches, including the photo, which allows for approximately 700 words. Larger obituaries may be edited based on space limitations and at the publisher’s discretion.

Obituaries must be prepaid and can be paid in person, by mail or with a credit card over the phone.
When emailing, please include a contact phone number so that we can reach you quickly with questions or for payment.

Deadline is Monday at 5:00 p.m, although every effort will be made to include obituaries submitted after the deadline in the next edition.

If you already have a complete obituary written, you may email it directly to rather than filling out this form.

Photos may be included and should be sent in a jpg format at a minimum of 225 dpi resolution.

Black and white or color photos can be used, providing the picture is of good quality and not too small. All obituary photos are printed in black and white.

Please include only the most outstanding or notable achievements (or “high points”) in the life of the person for whom the obituary is being written since space is limited.
