The Courier offers paid obituaries along with a continuing option to place a $25 death notice in the paper.
A $25 death notice may include:
• Deceased’s full name, age, city/state of residence, one former residence, date and place of death.
• Names of parents (deceased or living).
• Names of survivors in immediate family. If no immediate family survive, predeceased members of the immediate family may be listed.
• Time, date and location of funeral, burial and any services. The funeral home can be listed as “in charge of arrangements.”
Paid obituaries can include any publishable information desired by the family, and will be charged at a rate of $1.80 per column line, plus a $60 base charge. Including a photo of the deceased will cost an additional $10.
Obituaries submitted by families and individuals must be accompanied by a contact phone number and address so information can be verified.
Obituaries can be submitted by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Attach a photo as a jpeg file. Deadline is 9 a.m. Tuesday for that week's paper.
You can also mail obituaries to Canyon Courier News Room, 27902 Meadow Drive, Suite 250, Evergreen, CO 80439; or call 303-350-1041.
