MEC to offer Write Your Obituary class
Wondering how to best have your last say? In a class offered free at the Merrill Enrichment Center, CeCelia Zorn, an accomplished author, award-winning teacher, and registered nurse, returns to help you learn how to write an obituary.
The class will be held on Tuesday, October 22 from 10 a.m.– Noon.
Participants will receive some questions and points to ponder when you register for the class. These will help you prepare and begin your obituary writing.
In this relaxed, hands-on class, Dr. Zorn will discuss specific parts of an obituary, common characteristics, and media considerations. She has taught this how-to class with many groups across western Wisconsin, including the Merrill Enrichment Center last winter. She has also co-authored a 10-part obituary-writing series in the Chippewa Valley Senior Review.
A full handout with helpful details and examples will be provided to all attendees.
Come to the class prepared to write, remember, reflect, and have fun! You will leave knowing how to write an obituary that not only includes necessary information, but is also personal, concise, and memorable.
