Obituaries must come from a funeral home for local funerals. For out of town obituaries, family must provide proof that the funeral was held, either in the form of a printed obituary or a link to the funeral home's website.

This space is intended for the family to honor their loved one's life and, as such, there is no restriction on how it is written. Obituaries will be run as written by the family or funeral home, so please pay special attention to correct spelling of names.

Funeral homes and mortuaries may be billed, all others must pay in advance. Please include contact information so we can obtain credit card information.


Note: The Marshall Democrat-News is published afternoons Monday, Wednesday, and Friday (except holidays). Deadline for obituaries is 8 a.m. the day of publication.
