Obituaries: We normally receive obituaries through the funeral home or crematory. Please ask for the obituary to be sent to the Brown County Democrat at newsroom@bcdemocrat.com. The deadline to receive obits for the current week’s paper is 10 a.m. Monday.

Free and paid versions are available. Click here to consult our policy.

You may submit an obituary directly to us, but we require some documentation of the death — either a death certificate or the phone number of the funeral home or crematory which is handling final arrangements. Please call 812-988-2221 to discuss this option.
