Death is an inevitable part of life, and the process of mourning and honoring those we have lost can be a difficult and trying experience. One of the most important elements of this process is the obituary, which serves as a way to remember and celebrate the life of the deceased. At Craig Funeral Home, we understand the importance of obituaries and strive to provide the best service to honor the life of the deceased.
What is an Obituary?
An obituary is a public announcement that marks the passing of an individual. It serves as a way for family and friends to share their memories and celebrate the life of their lost loved one. Obituaries can be published in the newspaper, or shared through social media or other online sources. Depending on the family’s wishes, obituaries can include a photograph, a brief biography of the deceased, funeral service information, and a list of survivors.

Our goal is to make the mourning process as easy and stress-free as possible.
How to Create an Obituary
Creating an obituary can be a difficult and emotional process, but it is important to make sure the obituary accurately reflects the life of the deceased. Start by gathering information on the deceased, including their full name, date of birth, date of death, cause of death, and any other relevant information. Then, write a brief biography of the deceased, highlighting their major accomplishments and special memories. Next, include information about the funeral service and any other memorials or tributes planned in their honor. Finally, include contact information for the family and any other information that the family wishes to share.
What Information Should Be Included in an Obituary?
An obituary should include relevant information about the deceased, such as their full name, date of birth and death, place of birth and death, and cause of death. It should also include a brief biography and a list of survivors.

Finally, contact information for the family should be included.
