Why publish an obituary online?
An obituary is a great way to share your loved one's story with the world, but newspaper obituaries usually cost hundreds (sometimes even thousands!) of dollars, despite that fact that fewer and fewer people read the newspaper.
When you publish an obituary on Wonderful Life, it's easy to share that story with the world and with the specific people who care the most — and all on your own schedule. You can post the link anywhere and easily email it to friends and family.
Plus, it's completely free.
How to write an obituary
Start with basic information
Most people choose to start with "[Name] of [city, state] passed away [unexpectedly/peacefully] on [date] at the age of [age]." Next, it's common to list predeceased and surviving family members.
Share the details that defined them
Spend a few paragraphs talking about their childhood, schools, career successes, general accomplishments, passions and/or anything else that you feel defined their life.
Add any service or memorial details
Let people know how they can participate in honoring the individual. On Wonderful Life, you can add specific events, and even send out email announcements and collect RSVPs.
