Death – Obituary

PORTLAND, Ore. — A person has died in the third fatal crash in Portland thus far in 2022.

On Sunday, Jan. 9, Portland Police Bureau officers responded to a crash on SE 82nd Avenue just south of SE Foster Road.

There were two damaged cars at SE Ellis Street and one person was pinned inside a car. Portland Fire & Rescue and AMR responded to the scene to extricate the person out of their car. Three patients were transported to the hospital for their injuries. Leaving the scene, all three patients were conscious and talking.

However, about 40 minutes later, authorities were made aware that one of the patients had life threatening injuries. That person is the patient whose death was reported on Thursday, Jan. 13. Police have not yet released the name of the patient. They said they would release more information once the next of kin had been notified.

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.
