Death Notice, Obituary Policy and Submittal Form
The Juneau Empire will run text-only notices of a death (death notice) as information is received and as space permits. These notices may be no more than 200 words in length, and do not include a photo. For a more detailed description of the individual including a photo, an obituary is an available option.
All other obituaries are paid obituaries. From the time obituary is received and the payment is collected it takes three days to publish the obituary. They are handled through our classified advertising department. For more information on placing a paid obituary, contact the classified department at (907) 523-2224 or (907) 523-2229. Please email the obituary and a photo attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The information for death notices will be edited to a standard news death notice format, which is as follows:
John Smith died March 23, 2011.
He was a driver for Alaska Tours and previously owned his own fishing boat. He graduated from Juneau-Douglas High School in 1980 and served in the U.S. Navy during Operation Desert Storm.
He is survived by his wife Jane Smith, his children Jack and Jill, his father John and other family members. His mother Joan preceded him in death.
Services will be held at 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Northern Light United Church, 400 W. 11th St.
