Obituary policy

The Tribune offers both free death notices and paid custom obituaries for Jackson County area residents, former residents and close relatives of area residents.

A free death notice contains basic information, including the time and place of death, details about visitation and services, memorial contributions and survivors.

Families who want to include more information or include a photograph or icon such as a flag or a religious symbol can purchase a custom obituary. Additional information in a custom obituary may include memberships, hobbies, employment and education.

The Tribune prefers to take obituary information from funeral homes but also will accept information from families as long as the information can be verified with a funeral home before publication. Payment is required before publication for custom obituaries purchased by individuals.

The deadline for submitting obituaries to The Tribune is 2:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 1 p.m. Sundays.
