Living Obituary Workshop Writing your own obituary is both challenging and rewarding, and it will be a huge help to your loved ones when you die. Practicality aside, this is an opportunity to reflect on your life and what you want people to remember about you—your accomplishments and passions, your contradictions and idiosyncrasies, even your shortcomings. Who better than you to decide what those words say? Jamie Passaro runs an obituary writing business called dear person, which can be seen at https://dearpersonobits.com/. She comes to the work of obituary writing with an intense love of people’s stories and the way those stories can be captured and passed on, creating and invigorating memories, and comforting grieving loved ones. Jamie will share her thoughts about what goes into a great obit at the Fern Ridge Library on Tuesday, January 28th at 6:00 PM. She will help you get started on your own exciting obituary. Participants will receive a 25-page booklet, Writing Your Own Obituary in Four Easy Steps. Please join her in this creative and lasting experience. Free..
