What is a Death Notice?
A death notice is a paid announcement in a newspaper which provides general information about the deceased person and communicates details about where and when the visitation, funeral and interment will occur. Lutz Funeral Home helps families write and submit death notices to the newspapers and publications of their choosing to eliminate any stress or confusion over the process.
What is an Obituary?
An obituary is also a published announcement of a person’s death, but is usually longer than a death notice, offering biographical details and more information about your loved one’s passions and achievements. Obituaries can be placed in newspapers, online or in funeral programs, but newspaper publication is at the discretion of each individual newspaper.
If Lutz Funeral Home is helping you with funeral arrangements, your Funeral Director will contact your local newspaper to determine if publication is possible and handle tasks associated with its submission. We will also add your obituary to our website.
You may view the current and past obituaries of families Lutz Funeral Home has served in the online Book of Memories™ on our website. Learn how the deceased person brightened the lives of those they knew and loved, find out the details of visitation and/or funeral services that are scheduled, leave your own tribute or condolence to the family, arrange for a sympathy card or flowers to be sent, or make a donation to charity in their memory.
Writing an Obituary
Writing an obituary for your loved one can be therapeutic and help you get through the grieving process. It’s your opportunity to show your loved one in the best possible light and to include information about them that others in the community may not know.
A basic obituary includes the deceased’s full name, age, the city in which they lived, the date they died, where they died and sometimes the cause of death.
