Obituaries are usually sent to us directly from the funeral homes. Please include your contact phone number. If you are a family member and would prefer to submit an obituary, please email the complete obituary for your loved one. Please include your name and best phone number to reach you. Also it is Telegraph/Cabinet Press policy that all obituaries that run in our papers must be confirmed by the funeral home or cremation society prior to scheduled run date. If you can not provide the contact information for the funeral home or cremation society, a certified death certificate may be used instead as verification.
Obituaries are published exactly as we receive them from the funeral homes or family members. It is the responsibility of the individual submitting the obituary to notice any errors before sending the obituary to The Telegraph and Cabinet Press.
Please ensure that the information you provide is as accurate and complete as you can to allow for proper representation of your loved one.
