Submit An Obituary

The Pelican Rapids Press partners with Modulist, an intuitive, self-serve order platform, where people can publish Business Announcements, family or professional Milestones, Death Notices, and Obituaries in their community newspaper. 

Place a Milestone announcement to commemorate engagements, weddings, anniversaries, births, big birthdays, pet celebrations, and retirements or other life events. 

Celebrate your business achievement, announce its new location or Employee of the Month by publishing a Business Announcement. 

This newspaper offers two different types of obituaries: Death Notices and Paid Obituaries. Death Notices include limited information and are rewritten to fit the newspaper’s style. Paid Obituaries can include up to two photos, biographical information and survivors, and will not be edited.

Modulist’s operations team is staffed six days a week and can assist in the placement process. Besides your community’s publication, Modulist partners with publications in Florida, North Dakota, Minnesota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Texas and Vermont. Find a full list of Modulist’s partners on their homepage.
