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.
