Information to include in obituaries
When writing an obituary, remember that there are several different styles and tones to use. Whether your loved one was a formal gentleman or a quirky, witty person, you can write an obituary that conveys their personality. Here are some helpful tips:
The first paragraph should tell the reader about the deceased. Describe how they spent their lives. Make sure to start with their date of birth or the year of their passing. You can also mention what clubs they were a member of, or if they had any charity work. It is important to remember the deceased’s hobbies and interests. If possible, include them in the obituary, as these are some of the most memorable parts of their lives.
Another important piece of information to include is the funeral director’s information. If there are any upcoming services, you should include the date, location, and officiant’s name. You can also write a short message or prayer. Finally, if the deceased left a will, you can ask for donations. You will be grateful for their thoughtfulness and consideration. The family can use the obituary to remember their loved one.
If you want to include the surviving relatives of the deceased, list them in order of proximity. Typically, the deceased’s relatives are unmentioned, but you can list them in parenthesis. Grandchildren and great-grandchildren should be listed under parenthesis. Similarly, you should also include the immediate family members who died before the deceased. This will make it easier for the family to send condolences.
