Submission deadline for placement in the next day’s edition is 4:15 p.m. daily, including weekends. Deadlines are subject to change based on holidays and special circumstances, such as inclement weather. Submitted notices are deemed accurate for ad placement and should be thoroughly reviewed prior to final submission, including pricing considerations.

Individuals wishing to submit an obituary should do so through the funeral home handling the arrangements. In the event you are not using a funeral home or our offices are closed, you may submit your obituary through legacy.memoriams.com
