Writing Your Own Obituary

All Locations

Have you ever considered writing your own obituary? Giving yourself the opportunity to describe you and your life at its end is a wonderful gift to yourself. You get to use the descriptors you choose, tell the stories you want others to remember, and highlight moments in your life that you feel best illustrate who you were. Your obituary can be serious, humorous, even snarky. There aren’t any hard and fast rules. Come to this quirky workshop led by Y member Trouble Mandeson who served as a hospice volunteer for nearly 20 years and loves to talk about death and dying.
