Obituaries of lower Kenai Peninsula residents or former residents (including part-time residents) will be published free of charge as a service under these conditions:
- The text must be no more than 700 words. The Homer News reserves the right to edit obituaries to fit Associated Press and house style.
- We will not edit obituaries to fit this word limit. Anyone wishing to publish an obituary longer than 700 words may have the obituary published as a paid display ad. The newsroom will not be involved in any editing of display ads.
- It is preferable to submit obituaries through funeral homes. Obituaries submitted by families should be done by a single family contact who is responsible for content. At our discretion, we may ask for additional documentation to verify a death.
- A photograph may be included. Color photos will be used on the website and black-and-white photos in print.
