Obituary Policy

The Chief has three options for submitting obituaries:

• BASIC OBITUARY: Includes the person's name, age, town of residency, and information about funeral services – No Cost.

• CUSTOM OBITUARY: You choose the length, the wording of the announcement, and if you want a small photo included – Cost is $75 for the first 200 words, $50 for each additional 200 words.

• PREMIUM OBITUARY: Often used by families who wish to include several photos and a longer announcement, or who wish to run a thank-you list of names – Cost varies by length of announcement.


All Obituaries That Run In The Newspaper Also Are Placed On The Chief's Website At No Cost!


Obituaries must be submitted and paid for by Noon Wednesday in order to appear in print that week.
