Obituary Information

At Weddle Funeral Services we go the extra effort of providing our own 100% in-house obituary service, (not like most funeral services where the content is owned and operated by a third party without your permission on knowledge).

With that like to help the families and we will publish the service time and location of any services, we have found this often helps in lessening the burdens on the family.  We also have open comments so family and friends can express and read of the many feelings.

Even though we use many outside services like local newspapers on occasions we do so with your approval.  We have taken the time honored approach of providing  our own 100% in-house obituaries as a free in-house services, plus we will gladly correct any error if it’s on our sites, even after the obituary has been published.

What is a Obituary ?

An obituary is many things in one: a notice of a death, a story of a ones life, a record of the extended family, information about a funeral service, a thank you to those who helped out, a request for memorial donations. The basic information must be covered, accurately and completely. As well, an obituary can be a compelling story of a life.
