Writing Pre-Need Obituaries

Monday, February 22, 2021

Obituaries provide an essential outlet for love and healing, and are often the final word on our lives. Unfortunately, they can be incomplete, or even inaccurate, because family members are asked to compose them during times of great stress and sadness. Taking the time to gather important facts about ourselves and our loved ones before we need them eases the pressure of “doing it right,” and allows our friends and families to focus on mourning. This hands-on workshop will cover the essential elements of obituary writing, and also share examples of creative ways to memorialize the people who mean the most to us. Presenter Ginger Ogilvie is a professional genealogist who has cursed many an obituary for leaving the important stuff out. Maximum 15. Facilitator: Ginger Ogilvie
