WRITING AN OBITUARY FOR YOUR LOVED ONE

Obituaries are among the most widely read and enduring stories in newspapers. Typically written by a loved one, an obituary can become an intimate view of what made that individual memorable to others.

MOST OBITUARIES CONTAIN THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION

BIOGRAPHICAL FACTS AND PHOTOGRAPHS

Include your loved one’s full name, birth date and place and most recent residence. Add a current or favorite photograph.

DATE AND LOCATION OF DEATH

You may choose to add the cause of death.

SURVIVORS

List your deceased loved one’s spouse, children and their spouses, parents, siblings and other close relatives. Add predeceased loved ones in birth order after listing living family members.

BACKGROUND FACTS

Include accomplishments like education, employment, affiliations, hobbies, and charitable or military service.

FINAL SERVICES INFORMATION

Provide the date, time and location of funerals, memorials, viewings or wakes. Add the funeral provider’s contact information.

SUGGESTED MEMORIAL CONTRIBUTIONS

Offering loved ones a way to take action can help them to heal. Request contributions to memorial accounts or charities. Add the address or website for donations to organizations that were important to your loved one.

OTHER HELPFUL SUGGESTIONS

START WITH A STATEMENT

Begin with a simple sentence such as: “Tom Smith of Provo, father of four and technology information specialist, died March 15th from cancer.”

KEEP IT ACCURATE

Be sure all dates, names, contact information and arrangements are correct. Proofread to check spelling and grammar. Ask a friend to review your final submission.

TELL THE STORY OF A LIFE WELL LIVED

An obituary is a final opportunity to tell the story of your loved one. Focus on passions and achievements. Describe awards, career activities, hobbies, and volunteer activities.

CONSIDER MULTIPLE VERSIONS

Use one for the newspaper obituary, another as the basis for a life sketch/eulogy, and a longer version for the online memorial at NelsonMortuary.com.
