Journal Obituary Policy

The deadline for obituaries to be published on Sundays will be at noon Saturday and the deadline for obituaries to be published on Mondays will be at noon Sunday. The 3:30 p.m. MDT deadline on weekdays will remain the same.

The Rapid City Journal offers obituaries as a way to inform friends throughout the area about the death of a person. Obituaries also offer families the opportunity to provide a final public memorial.

The Journal offers two kinds of obituaries:
A standard obituary will list the name, age, residence of the deceased; date of death; branch of military service; and funeral arrangements. Obituaries for veterans will display an American flag. There is no charge for this obituary.

A memorial obituary, for which there is a charge, allows family or friends to fashion the obituary to their particular specifications. In addition to information for the standard obituary, you may add information about the person’s life, work, community activities, awards or honors, special interests or anything else you feel is important. Obituary information must be provided by the funeral home handling arrangements.

The name and city of the funeral home in charge of arrangements must be included for publication of any obituary. The Journal does not take obituaries over the telephone. The best way to submit an obituary is to have the funeral home email it to If you have questions about the Journal's obituary policy, you may call obituary desk at 394-8420 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
