At Routsong Funeral Home we use several types of obituary notifications: local newspapers, out of town newspapers, www.routsong.com, and Tributes.com. Using one of our two web site options you can email your loved one’s obituary via your email contact list.
Obituaries should be developed by your loved one’s relationship connections such as education, career, memberships, hobbies, etc. If you choose the option to include a photo, it should be the most recent photo that shows the person in good health.
