An ASURA Obituary Volunteer regularly looks for obituary notices for people who were at some time ASU employees or who had another significant (non-student) connection to ASU. Notices may be found in newspapers and other publications, from communications from bereaved family members, from communications from ASURA members, and so forth. The most common source is the obituaries section of the Arizona Republic.

The obituaries are edited for use in ASURA publications: e-mails notices, these pages on our website, and Prime Times. The editing focuses on the person's affiliation with Arizona State University.
