CWIC Technologies
Obituary is an app that allows you to read obituaries from thousands of papers across America and the rest of the world.

Our beautiful interface provides the best way to browse, read, and share the stories of your beloved friends and family who are no longer with us.


By organizing thousands of newspapers into gorgeous menus categorized by location you will be able to find the stories you want much faster than searching the internet or papers. Each paper provides a brief preview of the obit, the ability to read the entire obit, share it through Facebook, twitter, or email, and even favorite it or write a comment.

We also provide highlights of the most recent Obituaries of celebrities and other highly accomplished individuals.

We are most proud to honor those that have fallen in the line of duty by providing a tribute to those heroes who have given their life defending their country.


Many of us read the obituaries so that we are aware of old friends or distant family members that have passed. With a touch of a button you can share the story through email, Facebook, or Twitter so that you can make sure their passing does not go unnoticed by family and friends.


We currently are covering obituaries from over 1600 of the largest newspapers in America, Canada and England. Below we have included a list of some of the newspapers we cover, but our current newspaper coverage is to large to list in this description so we have included a link at the bottom of this description that has a more detailed coverage description. If we don't have a paper you would like, please email us and we will do our best to add it.

Our verdict: Meh!
