An obituary can chart the life of your loved in chronological order and can focus on their accomplishments and impact that person had on his or her family, friends, and community. Writing an obituary is no easy task, especially if you are currently going through the emotions of a loss of a loved one.

Below shows an outline for samples of obituaries. Included are suggested items for inclusion to help guide you through a sample obituary. Keep in mind the length of words you are allotted if writing it for the newspaper or printed publication. If you need to shorten the obituary for the publication, perhaps a longer version can be placed in the funeral program for those who attend the funeral service. For newspaper obituaries, make sure you time the publication of the obituary so that it runs a few days or a week before the memorial service.

Samples of Obituaries:

1. Begin with the person’s full name, date of birth, date of death.

2. In chronological form, indicate the account of the person’s life starting from place of birth, where they grew up, received their education and place of residency. Include a list of schools attended, degrees received, vocation and hobbies.

3. Make acknowledge to any survivors, including parents, spouse and children. The surviving relatives can be listed by name if you desire.

4. Announce when and where the funeral, burial, wake and/or memorial service will take place.

5. Conclude with a statement regarding where memorial contributions can be sent, if applicable. The initial words can include “In lieu of flowers…” or “Memorial donations may be made to…”
