Death – Obituary –

I’m very sad to hear that Betty White passed away today at the age of 99. While known for The Golden Girls, she did lots of voice acting on shows like Wild Thornberries, Simpsons, Teacher’s Pet, Billy and Mandy, SpongeBob, and films like Ponyo and Toy Story 4. I’m gonna miss her. https://t.co/lbAeFIih1s

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.
