An obituary is a newspaper notice of the death of a person that contains a biographical sketch. In addition to the state-mandated information for the death certificate, Allen Mortuary will need specific information to assist in completing your loved one’s obituary.

Your arrangement counselor at Allen Mortuary will submit the obituary to the newspaper(s) of your choice, with your permission. Obituaries published by The Modesto Bee and the Turlock Journal involve a charge based on length. Most out-of-area newspapers may also charge a fee.
