The ad must be processed, proofed and paid for by the deadline.

There is no format to follow or form to fill out. Simply state what you would like to say for the obituary or memorial tribute.


All life tributes are pre-paid. We do not send bills for these notices. We accept all major credit cards, checks, and cash. You may place your ad in one of the following ways:

  • Obituary and Announcement Desk Hours: Monday-Friday 8:00am-5:00pm
  • To submit the notice and any photographs and pay in person at The Gazette, 30 E. Pikes Peak Ave., Ste. 100, on the corner of Pikes Peak Ave. and Tejon Str.
  • Notices and Photos may be sent separately by email or submitted in person at The Gazette. Our mailing address: The Gazette Obituaries Desk, 30 E. Pikes Peak Ave. Ste. 100, Colorado Springs, CO 80903.  Email: obits@gazette.com
