WFIW only accepts obituaries via e-mail. As we continue to upgrade our technology, it has become necessary to receive all obituary notices from area funeral homes via e-mail. The quality of handwritten and typewritten obituaries that are faxed to us has steadily fallen in recent years and makes reading important information difficult. In an effort to reduce errors, it has become necessary to receive the clearest copy possible—and that is by way of e-mail.
