Under Pennsylvania law death notices are legally required, but placing an obituary in the local paper is completely voluntary. Obituaries are posted by friends or family solely to honor the deceased and do not serve any legal purpose or requirement.

According to the Brown Funeral Home Incorporated website, obituaries normally include the name of the deceased, their date of birth and death, and sometimes include the nature and location of their passing. They often contain information as to where the deceased lived and worked, what major accomplishments they may have achieved, and include the names of any relatives the deceased left behind. Sometimes a picture of the deceased is included, as well as the date and time of their funeral or memorial service. The obituary may also include any preferences the family may have concerning donations and other assistance.

To place an obituary with the Valley News Dispatch, send an email to obits@tribweb.com. The fee for obituaries varies with length and optional pictures. The newspaper will provide the cost options for submitted content.
