Writing An Obituary Everyone Wants Before Grief Strikes

If your loved one just passed away, you may be wondering, “How do I write an obituary? Don’t worry, ExitBliss members are already prepared!

In your time of grief, you may feel overwhelmed by the responsibility of writing an obituary.

You may not be sure what to say or worry that you’ll forget important facts and information, or that the obit won’t fully communicate the depth and meaning of your loved one’s life.

In our half-day workshop we give you the step-by-step guide to preparing all of the essential elements in an obituary.

We also know that people often feel alone and overwhelmed as they check out estate planning. We host intimate virtual peer support groups of 10-15 individuals across the globe.

We offer this workshop once a month, every third Saturday evening. It is facilitated by an ExitBliss expert and will focus on support, resource sharing, and accountability.

Should you want more privacy, we offer 1:1 program resources as well.

Part 1: Obituary Guidelines

Understand what the funeral homes will charge you a fee for when it comes to writing your full obituary for you based off an obituary checklist

Part 2 - Obituary Checklist

Review the checklist of the biographical information you can include, at your discretion. Provide as much, or as little, as you feel comfortable sharing.

Part 3 - Unique Personalization

Sometimes a short message, a short prayer or a meaningful line from a poem is placed at the end. These messages are optional, but can be a way of communicating something that did not fit into the body of the obituary.

Part 4: Picture Me in Glee

A photo can also be a visual reminder of your loved one. Some people elect to share an old photo, but if friends don’t recognize the person in the photo, they may not read the obituary

Half-Day workshop – Flawless Obituaries

“Do you really want your family to use your passport photo on the cover of your obituary?

It’s a crazy world out there, and we understand your need to be heard and understood. Because people are different, we host intimate virtual peer support groups of 10-15 individuals across the globe. Or 1:1 should you prefer.

We meet monthly, on the third Saturday of the month in the evening. Groups are facilitated by an ExitBliss Coach and focus on support, resource sharing, and accountability.

Three reasons to TAKE THIS COURSE right now!

  1. We believe writing an obituary is both a great honor — and a great responsibility… Good obituaries are about a person’s life, not death. The obituary of a loved one should provide fond memories, honor special occasions, and publicly declare a very real impact on the world.
  2. Confidence in knowing how the obituary is truly a life story which announces the passing of a member of the community, to which they belonged. An obituary provides mourners and friends with information about the funeral and how they can properly pay their respects to both the deceased and the remaining loved ones.
  3. You get to join your peers to navigate the stories of life and build on similarities to get everything important organized once & for all. Plus you get to ask me questions and watch me respond to every single one of them with intention and as thoughtfully as I can!

Who this course is for:

Anyone who wants a complete overview of Estate Planning and certainty that they are getting the facts
A head-of-household that wants to prepare for life transitions
Individuals without children who want to understand what to do with their assets
Separated parents that need to put guardianship plans in place in case one parent passing away
An Individual who started but never finished their estate plan and wants a concise, quick refresher

Peer Groups

An intimate group of peers who want that sense of community, support and space to discuss, take action, and celebrate success for each other’s progress


A “private” person is said to be more intuitive, thoughtful and introspective. Usually want 1:1 support or would rather have the tools to DIY
