The Lawrence Times is offering Lawrence and Douglas County community members space to publish remembrances of loved ones who lived in this community, free of charge. These pieces are submitted by funeral directors or family and friends of the deceased and not written by our staff.
We are glad to be able to offer this service free to community members in mourning. We believe the last thing our neighbors need in those difficult moments is another financial matter to worry about. Please consider supporting The Lawrence Times to help us continue providing this service and news access for all.
To submit an obituary, please fill out this form.
We’re sorry, but we cannot accept obituary submissions via email or other means.
