Funeral directors in the service area of The News-Gazette can use their funeral home login to place an obituary at https://obituaries.news-gazette.com

Out of area funeral homes and family members may use our public obituary form to submit an obituary for review. We recommend having your entry in prior to 3PM CST to ensure it gets published the following day, if desired. The obituary submitted through this form will be vetted by our staff and a request for more information or payment sent within a few hours time. 

If you need assistance, please call 217-351-5220 Monday-Thursday before 4 p.m. One of our newsroom employees will assist you. On Fridays and Saturdays, please call between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., and on Sundays and holidays between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. For more information, please visit the Obituaries application for detailed instructions
