The Post-Gazette's comprehensive listings of recent deaths include two types of obituaries. News obituaries, prepared by our staff, are published at the discretion of our editors. Links to staff-written obituaries contain the individual's name. To suggest a news obituary, call 412-263-1601. The "Latest Deaths" report below is provided as a public service. We accept information for this list only from funeral directors and representatives of crematoriums and memorial societies, who may call 412-263-1601 from 9 8:30 p.m.

Some names in the list of latest deaths are followed by a "CO", which indicates that a Classified Obituary has been published for this individual. Funeral directors may place classified obituaries by calling 412-263-1371. To go to our list of classified obituaries, click here.
