Legacy has launched more than 20 new obituary partnerships with local media organizations this year, the company says.

“Now more than ever, local news publishers are a vital lifeline of information for their readers,” says Legacy CEO Stopher Bartol. “We believe Legacy’s memorial experience helps our new media partners unite their communities with a central place to remember, grieve, and honor their loved ones, and to find the right local providers for memorial planning and other important services.”

Among the news 2020 partners are the North Dallas Gazette, Ogle County News (Dixon, Illinois), The Times (Ottawa, Illinois)/The Small Newspaper Group, Wyoming Tribune Eagle (Cheyenne) and the Greeley Tribune (Colorado).

The company provides support and obituary-related services to more than 1,500 newspapers and 3,500 funeral homes in the U.S., Canada, New Zealand and the U.K. Legacy.com is headquartered in Chicago.
