Recognizing the timeliness of such news, obituary notices will be posted online within a day of being received from the funeral home.
Previously, obituaries were printed only in the weekly Wednesday edition, and then appeared on the website on Wednesdays.
As a reminder, we accept obituaries only from the funeral home in charge. For information on submitting an obituary, please contact HD Media by phone at 304-526-2793 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To get into the Wednesday print edition of the Independent Herald, obituaries must be received by 1 p.m. Sunday.
To access obituaries, visit www.IndependentHerald.com and click on Obituaries.
