Paid Obituary Submission Form
Families interested in placing a tribute in our newspapers with specific wording and a photo may do so as a paid ad. We are happy to offer writing assistance or to work with your funeral home to produce this as well.

The cost for the tribute will depend on how many words and photos in the obituary. These tributes are written by the family and can include anything the family desires. Typical information includes: accomplishments, activities, life history, extended family and friends, etc.

In an effort to inform as many of our readers as possible, these obituaries will appear in the Portland Tribune and at least one of our local newspapers.

A representative from our company will call you back to confirm your obituary and to accept payment. For more information please contact the specific newspaper that you are interested in having your obituary run in.
