ObitWriter℠ is a first-of-its-kind tool that helps funeral directors and families easily create obituaries for placement in local newspapers.

How it Works

ObitWriter℠ guides family members though a simple, interactive format that generates a complete, publish-ready custom obituary in minutes. The obituary text can easily be distributed to family and friends for review, saved for any finishing touches or published directly to a newspaper via partner links on Legacy.com.

Log-in Feature

Now, families and funeral directors can create an ObitWriter log-in using their Facebook, Google, or email accounts. The log-in feature makes it easy for families to save the obituary and come back to it later, and allows funeral directors the opportunity to see all the obituaries they’ve created in one place.

81% said they were more likely to place an obituary with a tool like ObitWriter℠.
