Commentary: Readers do get unhappy without Willmar obituaries


One of the best read parts of the West Central Tribune — in print, online or digital editions — is the obituaries and death notices published on our records page. Obituaries and death notices are generally one of the top read sections of any newspaper.

When something happens on overnight and obituaries are not posted online, readers — especially those in winter sunbird destinations — will be calling the newspaper first thing in the morning.
