What is an Obituary?
An obituary is a short death notice that is published in newspapers, magazines, and on the internet. It is typically written by a surviving family member or friend, and will include basic biographical information such as the person’s name, date of birth and death, cause of death, and any other pertinent details. In addition, the obituary may include a photograph or other image, as well as a brief biography of the deceased.
Why is an Obituary Important?
An obituary is an important part of the grieving process for many people. It allows family and friends to remember their loved one and share memories with others. It can also provide closure and comfort to those who are grieving. In addition, an obituary can be a valuable source of information for genealogists and those researching their family history.
How to Write an Obituary
Writing an obituary can be a daunting task, but with a few simple tips, it can be made easier. Start by gathering information on the deceased, such as dates of birth, death, and marriage, as well as any awards or achievements. Next, decide who will write the obituary. This can be a family member, friend, or a professional writer. Finally, decide what format to use. Some newspapers require a specific format, while others may allow more creative freedom.
What to Include in an Obituary
When writing an obituary, make sure to include the basics about the deceased, such as name, age, date of birth and death, and cause of death. You may also want to include a brief biography, such as where the deceased lived, their education and career, any hobbies or interests, and any special accomplishments or awards. You may also want to include a photograph or other image. Finally, you can include information about any services or memorials that will be held.
Where to Publish an Obituary
Once you have written your obituary, the next step is to decide where to publish it. Most newspapers allow families to submit obituaries for publication.
