NOWCastSA launched this section to recognize those who have lost their lives to the coronavirus, as well as people who have died of other causes. We are providing this as a free community service.

Social distancing guidelines mean people cannot share their grief in traditional ways by participating in funerals, graveside services and wakes. We hope the obituaries published here will bring some comfort by honoring a departed friend or loved one.
