Submitting an obituary ...
The Leelanau Enterprise considers the deaths of Leelanau County community members as important news. As such, the Enterprise does not charge to publish obituaries within our standard format. Anyone who at one time resided in Leelanau County or owned a summer home here is eligible. We ask that the deceased’s connection to Leelanau County be included in information provided the Enterprise when not obvious.
We work in conjunction with area funeral homes to assure that obituaries are published in a timely fashion. Should the funeral director your family is working with be unfamiliar with the Enterprise, please ask him or her to forward information for a free obituary to the newspaper.
While many families find our standard format appropriate, others would prefer to include more of their own wording or seek to include more information in their loved one’s obituary. In those cases, we will work with funeral directors and family members to publish a custom obituary. There is a charge to publish such obituaries.
Obituaries may be faxed to 231 256-7705, mailed to 7200 E. Duck Lake Rd., Lake Leelanau 49653, or emailed to obituaries@ Leelanaunews.com. Please verify that we have received obituaries after sending. We may be reached at 231-256-9827.
