Frequently Asked Questions


Why should I subscribe?

People subscribe to our obituary email feed to avoid paying monthly newspaper fees, and also to read obituaries that are only published on our website (not in local papers).

Do emails include ALL of the obituaries within the Greater Rochester, MN area?

No. The obituaries you will receive are derived from Macken Funeral Home services only. We do not aggregate obituaries from third parties.

How often do I receive emails?

Emails are sent automatically daily between 3:00am - 5:00pm and include all new obituaries we’ve added since the last email.
If we do not add any new services for a particular day, you will not receive an email the following day.

How do I unsubscribe?
