Death – Obituary –

John Madden passed away earlier today. In my late teens, he and his wife, Virginia, lived a couple of houses down from me. He was always great with the neighborhood kids and always waved β€œhello” if he saw us outside. Rest In Peace. 🏈🏈🏈🏈🏈 https://t.co/nD8eFoK8iq

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: β€œObits 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.
