Death – Obituary

WILLARD, Mo. – Back in August, the Willard Future Farmers of America started collecting items for a service project they wanted to do for Christmas.  Now, they have delivered Christmas cheer to service men and women around the globe.

The initial plan was to send 13 boxes to soldiers in South Korea after Willard FFA teacher Dana Kimmons was told by an old student that 13 soldiers in his command never receive any mail.  Kimmons told her classes.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
