An obituary is a notice or announcement of a person's death typically published in a newspaper or online publication.
It describes the life of the person who has died and includes their name, age, date and place of birth and death, and Surviving Family members.
It is often written as a tribute to the person who has died and includes a biographical sketch of the person's life, details of their accomplishments, and may also include information about a Funeral or Memorial Service, as well as requests for donations to a charity or cause in memory of the deceased.
Obituaries are often written by family members or friends of the deceased, although they may also be written by a Funeral Home.
Historically, obituaries were published in local newspapers in the town where the deceased lived, but today they are often posted on a Memorial Website to more easily reach the deceased's community wherever they may live.
Autumn's memorial websites help share important information, obituaries, dates and locations for events, helps manage RSVPs, request support, and share and collect memories in one place.
