Obituaries have long been a valued part of the MB Herald. From the funeral bulletins, eulogies, and newspaper obituaries you send, our editors craft life stories of our members to inspire and encourage our readers, creating a memorial of MB saints.
Since the Spring 2018 issue, MB Herald charges for this service.
Although January 2020 was the final print issue of the Herald, we continue publishing obituaries from our MB family.
For a flat rate of $30 for up to 400 words and a photograph, we will prepare an obituary compliant with our in-house style.
When submitting obituaries, please endeavour to include the following information:
- Death date
- Parents’ names
- Date [year] & church of baptism (if available)
- Life details
- Date [year] of marriage, spouse’s maiden name, spouse’s death date (if applicable)
- Name of MB church where member or attendee
- Names of children, number of grandchildren, number of surviving siblings (as applicable)
A high-resolution JPG may be included alongside the life story.
Please submit obituaries either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or using the form below.
After you have reviewed a screenshot of the formatted obituary, you will receive a link to a secure payment site. If you prefer not to use PayPal, you may submit mail a cheque to MB Herald (note: Obituaries), 1310 Taylor Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R3M 3Z6.
