The Addison Independent charges $0.25 word for obituaries and $10 per photo. If the obituary is under 100 words there is no charge for text. Obituaries are published in print in the soonest edition after it has been submitted unless requested otherwise. Obituaries are posted online as soon as they have been approved by the family/funeral home and proofed. Specific questions and more information about an obituary can be directed to [email protected].

If the family wishes we can publish a free Notice of Passing instead of a paid obituary. We would edit a Notice of Passing submission so that it is no longer than 100 words, and it does not include a photo.


Please be sure to include the following information. Items with an asterisk are required. Photos may also be included.
