Publish a Notice of Death Turning Point

Use this form to submit a Turning Point announcement for the recently deceased. We accept announcements from funeral homes, crematoriums and individuals in the community. Each announcement will be posted online in Illinois Times’ Turning Points section on the next business day and published in print on the following Thursday (unless you specify differently). The deadline for each week's print issue is Monday by noon.

Turning Point announcements cost $1 per word. Each purchase includes a print and online announcement with one free photo and funeral service provider logo if desired. Additional photos are $10 each.

Death notices for infants under one year are published at no cost.

Please note, the submission will be reviewed before publication. Questions? Need help? Call Stacie at 217-679-7801 or email
