An obituary is a written statement sharing news of the death of a person. More than just an announcement of a death, the obituary is a place where we document a loved one’s life history for it to live on forever. In addition to an announcement of a death, the obituary also tells a person’s life story. An obituary shares not only a person’s birth and death dates, but it typically includes at least one photograph of someone, as well as highlights about their achievements or even personality.
You will begin with the basic death notice, which states plainly your loved one died (name, age, hometown). Provide a name and very short description, your loved one’s age, and the day of passing. We start by providing the name, age, and residence of the person who died, as well as the time and location of death. The city or town where he lived, where he died, the person’s age, and the date of the death, including the year, are all important facts to include in writing a death notice.
When writing about the deceased’s life, including significant events in the person’s life, such as date and place of birth, and the person’s parents. While this is an important piece of information to include, keep in mind the obituary is your final opportunity to tell people about the deceased’s life and the contributions that the deceased made to their community. An obituary includes pertinent facts as well, but it goes beyond that to give a fuller view of the deceased’s experience in life.
