Here is a list of the email addresses of some of the newspapers that obituaries in our area are commonly submitted to.  When you submit your obituary be sure and include your contact information (Name, phone number, address) in order that the newspaper can contact you for direct payment by credit card.  Most newspapers charge per word, per day, with additional charges being added for pictures.  They typically have a 3:30 pm deadline the day before the obituary is to run.  The newspaper may contact us directly to verify the death and we will confirm it as necessary.  We will also put the obituary on our website as well if you email it to us at
