A memorial service will be held 2 p.m. Tuesday, July 16 at Green Street Baptist Church. 

Family will receive friends at Memorial Funeral Service in High Point from noon to 3 p.m. Monday. Memorial Funeral Service is serving the family. 

  • Any information added to this will make this a paid obituary with a charge for each word. 
  • All obituaries and death notices will appear on www.hpe.com in our obituary section. 

 

If you are a family member:

  • Send the obituary by email to obits@hpe.com. If you'd like to include a photo, please attach it as a jpg. Head-and-shoulder portrait shots work best. 
  • Be sure to include your name, address, phone number and method of payment. 

  • To provide credit or debit card information please call 336-888-3500 and then dial 3 to get to the newsroom.
  • We will be happy to process the obituary in person weekdays before 4:30 p.m. Unfortunately we can't process in person on weekends and during major holidays. 

 

Payment: 

We require payment before the obituary runs. Deadlines are 4:30 p.m. daily. 

Our policy requires proof of death such as a death certificate when a family member submits an obituary.  You may also provide the name and phone number of the funeral home that handled arrangements and we will call to verify the death. 

 

If you are a funeral home:

Unless you have an established account with us, payment is required before the obituary publishes. 

We accept major credit cards. Payment must be made by 4:30 p.m. to publish in the next day's paper. All funeral homes and cremation services should submit obituaries and photos to us by email. We can no longer accept faxed obituaries from those businesses.

Send obituaries to obits@hpe.com. You can reach our associate handling obituaries by calling 888-3500 and then dial 3 to get to the newsroom.

 

*Our deadline is noon on major holidays and during severe weather.
