Tips for Writing an Obituary

Whether your loved one asks for direct cremation in Detroit or an open casket funeral ceremony, an obituary will let friends, coworkers, and acquaintances know about his or her passing. Obituaries typically contain certain key pieces of information about the individual who has passed away. Watch this video clip for a few tips for writing an obituary.

An obituary should be informative and tasteful. Be sure to list the name of the individual who has passed away as well as his or her date of birth and date of death. Include any important information about funeral or memorial services so that friends and relatives can pay their respects. You can also include information about the departed individual’s personality or hobbies, who he or she is survived by, and where the person worked. When writing an obituary, think about how the person would want it to read and channel that wish.
