Obituary Template (Printed Version)- Also known as obituary samples or obituary example. Traditionally, an obituary refers to a written description of a person’s life and when and where the services will be held. It explains their birth date and place, death date and place, family, life accomplishments, personality, and includes the date and time of the memorial service. Over the last few years, people have also been calling the printed order of services that is handed out at the funeral, “the obituary”. This website article will focus on the printed version of the obituary template more then the written obituary. Often, the written obituary is included in the printed obituary template as well.
Written Obituary Template – The written obituary template listed below is more of a traditional and generic obituary template but you can convey the necessary information for the funeral in creative ways that will convey the personality of the person that has passed on. These days, custom obituaries are becoming more and more popular because they help celebrate the life of the loved one that has passed on. You will find this obituary template listed below in the application as well when you insert a textbox into your project.
“Full Name”, “Age”, resident of ”Place of Residence”, died/passed away, “Date” “Location of Death”(example: at his home) from (can also include optional cause of death, example: natural causes, heart attack).
“He/She” was born in “Place”, “Date of Birth”, the “Son/Daughter” of “Father First Name and Mother First Name and Last Name”. “First Name” attended “School Name” and received “Degree” or “Graduated in” “Name of Degree”. “Name” was married to “Spouse Name” on “Wedding Date”.
“He/She” spent “His/Her” working career in “Place of Work” working in/with “Description of Work”. (List here any other biographical information like volunteer work, achievements, hobbies, interests.)
“He/She” was survived by “Spouse”; “Number of Brother/Sister and their Names”; “Number of Children and their Names”; “Number of Grandchildren and their Names”; “Any other Relation to Family”.
A memorial service will be held “Day of Week, Month Date, Year” at “Time” and “Place”.
