Day 4 of the #30DayFHWChallenge is to write an obituary for an ancestor. Be sure to include information about any surviving ancestors, the deceased’s occupation, and his age at death.
My grandma, Clara Lou Peters Stewart, died in September of 2002. While my aunt, who is the gossip columnist for our local paper, wrote a fitting tribute to her and said thank you for those who helped with her battle against polycystic kidney disease, I always felt my grandmother’s original obituary was quite lacking. I know it’s hard to pack all the details of one’s life into a few short paragraphs and surely things do get omitted. This would be my obituary from a grandchild’s perspective.
