Obituaries are published Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in the Daily Gate City. The deadline is 8 a.m. daily.

A free obituary includes the name of the deceased, age, place of residence, date and place of death, date and place of birth, parents’ names, surviving spouse’s name, number of surviving children, and the names and places of residence of any surviving children who reside in Lee and Van Buren counties in Iowa, Hancock County, Ill., and Clark County, Mo. It also includes funeral and visitation services information, and the funeral agency in charge of arrangements.

Additional information may be included in a full format obituary. The full obituary rate is 12 cents per word. Photographs may be included at an additional $5 per photo charge. An obituary subheading tribute to the deceased person (six-word limit, please) is an additional $5. Obituaries for veterans and those serving in the military feature a U.S. flag alongside the headline.


Obituaries received for Wednesday’s Daily Gate City by 2 p.m. on the previous Monday also are published in Tuesday’s shopper/news edition, the Bonny Buyer South. All obituaries which appear in the Bonny Buyer South are repeated in Wednesday’s Daily Gate City, but only the Wednesday run is billed.


Call 319-524-8300, ext. 106, E-mail Lauren Zechin , or fax 319-524-4363. Please include the funeral home’s contact number, your mailing address, and specify a full or free obituary format.


Obituaries that appear in the print edition also are published online after noon each day on the Daily Gate City's website,
