Back before the Internet, the best way to announce the death of a loved one was to publish it in the local newspaper. Now in the digital age we live in, many people still choose to publish obituaries in newspapers.
Depending on the size of the newspaper, there may be a small fee to publish an obituary, or it may cost a significant amount of money if it’s a long obituary. Others just publish an obituary on the funeral home’s website and spread the word on social media channels.
