About the Event

An obituary can be as simple as checking boxes and listing place of birth, relationships, and dates of matriculation. Yawn. A real, personalized, meaningful obituary captures the essence of another human, who they truly were, what impassioned them, what about them touched the world around them in unique ways. It takes skill, awareness, and art to do this! 

We are so fortunate to have the wonderful Shannon Marshall, founder and owner of Centrepiece Writing Studio, with us this week! Shannon is a gifted writer of obituaries, eulogies, and reflections, among other forms. The value she places on listening, observing, empathy, and enthusiasm translates into writing that is anything but the checklist obituary. This week, bring a pen and paper, and cultivate gratitude and appreciation as you craft a personalized obituary, a tribute, to someone you love.
