There’s no law or requirement to publish an obituary in a newspaper. Many people choose to do it because it notifies people that their loved one has passed away. Social media, funeral home websites, and online obituary listings can also get the word out. Your family can decide where you wish to publish the obituary.
If you write an obituary for a loved one, we invite you to upload it to the Circa Legacy Obituary Hall of Fame for all to see!
