Setting up one site where our family could post information about Jackson, his funeral arrangements, allow people to share photos and memories, and provide a place where people can give online to his Memorial Scholarship Fund was extremely helpful. It was so powerful to read the many wonderful tributes his fellow students, friends, and teachers posted. We could share a link to the web site from our social media so everyone had one place to go, regardless of what social media platform they preferred. We even exceeded our Memorial Scholarship Fund goal. Most importantly, the site was extremely easy to set up, very accessible, easy to change and update, and free.

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 Ever Loved, 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

STEP 1

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.

STEP 2

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.

STEP 3

Add any service or memorial details

Let people know how they can participate in honoring the individual. On Ever Loved, you can add specific events, and even send out email announcements and collect RSVPs.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an obituary?

An obituary is an overview of someone's life that is published after the person passes away. Obituaries are usually written by a family member or close friend but can be written by a professional as well.

Why are online obituaries gaining in popularity?

Today, most people find that online obituaries are the easiest way to share their loved one's life story and key funeral information with friends and family. Historically, obituaries were usually published in the local newspaper, but as physical papers have become less popular and people are more spread out, newspaper obituaries have become less effective at reaching everyone, so more people have turned to posting obituaries online. Digital obituaries allow families to include as much information as they'd like and are easy to share with anyone. By publishing an obituary on an obituary website like Ever Loved, you also make it easy for others to find the obituary using Google and through the site's obituary listings.

What if I don't know how to write an obituary?

You're not alone! Many people don't know how to write an obituary when they first start, but Ever Loved has tons of resources to help guide you. We recommend starting by looking over real obituary examples to get a feel for the style that you like. Many people also find that it helps to use an obituary template. You'll be able to simply fill in your loved one's information, and then edit any of the text to match what you'd like to cover. It's important to remember that there's no one obituary format that you need to follow; an obituary can be whatever you want it to be.
