Obituary Guidelines


Deadlines:

Monday-Friday 8:30am-4:30pm, Call 610-915-2226
(Proofs will be provided for accuracy only, they will not be styled/formatted like the finished product)

(No proofs will be furnished. Pricing will not be available until the next business day after 10:00am by calling Dianne at 610-915-2226)

Obituaries received after 4:30pm will not be published in the following edition of the paper.

Sending Procedure:

Email is the preferable method for receiving Obituaries (and the only method on Saturday, Sunday and Holidays), they can be sent to [email protected] (Please call to confirm that we’ve received the email)

Formatting:

Obituaries will continue to visually look the same as they currently do, but you will no longer be restricted in what you can say (ex. As much Family can be listed as you’d like; Wording like “Went to rest with the Lord” is now permissible)

Other:

There is a cost for each obituary. Pricing and payments are only available Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. All weekend and holiday submissions will be provided a cost the next business day.

Publication date is now guaranteed if the Obituary is received prior to 4:30pm

Exceptions:

All New accounts, Out of State Funeral Homes and Private Parties require prepayment upon approval. Weekend and Holiday staff are not authorized to process payments and will not process your obit request during this time. A complete name, mailing address and best contact phone number are required upon submittal of your obituary request to set up your account. A proof will then be emailed for review but placed on hold until payment is received.

Obituaries will be viewable from the Obit section of our website, Delcotimes.com, which will be powered by Legacy.com for 365 days where a guestbook will also be provided.
