A standard obituary has four components, the order of which sometimes varies, depending on the style of the writer.
The announcement of the deceased’s passing. This will include the individual’s full name and date of death. It may also, but not necessarily, include his or her age and cause of death.Meaningful details surrounding the life of the loved one. These details may include education, hobbies, important friendships or relationships, and significant milestones (such as graduations, baptisms, marriages, births, or other important events).   Religious, spiritual, or personal convictions of the departed may also be discussed.A brief listing of relatives who have predeceased or survived the deceased. Most frequently included are parents, spouses, siblings, children, and grandchildren. Sometimes significant extended family, such as grandparents, in-laws, or cousins, may be mentioned as well.

Details as to when and where the funeral or burial will take place. Whether it is a ceremony, a service, or a celebration of life, the details regarding date, location, time, and the public or private nature of the event should be clear and concise. This component sometimes ends with information regarding where donations can be made in honor of the deceased, as an alternative to flowers.

A eulogy is a well-crafted speech intended to commemorate a loved one who has died. It is usually presented at a memorial service or funeral by someone who was close to the deceased and knows them well.A eulogy may contain:

  • a condensed life history of the person who has died
  • details about family, friends, work/career, interests, and achievements
  • favorite memories of the deceased
