The Free Lance–Star publishes brief death notices for free and paid obituaries. Funeral homes submit obituaries.
Family members who submit obits have to pay in advance and provide the funeral home name and phone number.
The obit deadline is 3 p.m. Information appears in the funeral box the day the obit appears in the paper,
the day before the funeral and the day of the funeral. We reserve the right to edit obits to conform to
newspaper style. Fax: 540/373-8455. Phone: 540/374-5410. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
