The death of a loved is never an easy thing to deal with and always sends families into turmoil. Aside from the emotional toll the loss of a loved one takes, it also forces families to plan for funerals, which can be a hectic process that only adds to their stress. The last thing that any family needs is even more stress during this time, which can arise in the confusion of writing and publishing an obituary. Thankfully, North Las Vegas, NV funeral homes can help families by taking this burden off their shoulders and writing a proper obituary for their deceased loved one. This service might be small, but it will help relieve stress, and most funeral homes will perform it for free. 

Once you’ve ascertained that your chosen funeral home will write an obituary for your deceased loved one, all you need to do is submit the following information to the funeral director. 

  1. The name and date of birth of the deceased person. 
  2. The announcement that the death has taken place on a particular date. 
  3. A summary of some of the things that may have been important to the life of the deceased person. These things might include his or her career, the school he or she graduated from, his or her hobbies, and so on. 
  4. A list of the people who have survived this person. 
  5. A list of any family members who may have predeceased this person. 
  6. The time and place of the pending funeral or memorial service. The obituary will have been published a few days beforehand. 
  7. A list of charities the deceased wanted donations to be made to in his or her name. 
  8. Any additional important information, such as the family’s request for financial assistance to stage the funeral. 

After you’ve submitted this information to your chosen funeral home, it will be refined into a completed obituary that is ready for publication and will be sent to the local newspapers. In its final form, an obituary can range from a brief passage to a far more elaborate biography, depending on the information that you submit to the funeral director beforehand. Take note, though, that some newspapers have limits on the length of the obituaries that they’ll accept. Your funeral director, who will have had experience with all of the publications in your area, will advise you on how long your obituary should be and the appropriate information you should submit to keep it at that length.
