In 2017, our little team lost four immediate family members within three months. It was a devastating time and, as the writers in our families, everyone expected us to write the obituaries. It’s something we wanted to do but we were surprised at how hard it was, even with our journalism backgrounds.
We spent a lot of time researching and poring over style guides for the correct way to put our memories into a permanent record. We knew if we were struggling, most people would be totally lost. There was a lot of general information, but we wanted specific help and it was in short supply.
In each case, people went out of their way to tell us how grateful they were to read the obituaries we had written. Our funeral director even commented they were the best obituaries he’d ever read. We want to share what we learned with anyone faced with writing an obituary, whether it’s one you’re writing in advance of a death (even your own) or one you write under tragic or unexpected circumstances.
