Submit an obituary

We can take obituaries from family members as long as we can confirm the death with a funeral home or crematory. Obituaries cost a minimum of $130 for up to 8 column inches. Other packages and options are available. We require payment via credit card in advance by 4:30 p.m. for the next day’s publication. We also offer free death notices, which are short and include basic service information.

You can email your information to obituaries@herald-mail.com.
