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 inhouse 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 or good quality printed photograph may be sent for publication alongside the life story. (Please indicate if hard copy photos should be returned.)
Please submit obituaries to firstname.lastname@example.org within 10 months of the date of death.
Churches, individuals, or historical societies may request a print-ready PDF of published obituaries emailed every quarter from email@example.com.
Payment can be submitted by cheque to MB Herald (note: Obituaries), 1310 Taylor Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R3M 3Z6 OR to Paypal.
