Write Your Obituary: You Get The Last Word!

As part of The Classic’s ongoing Savvy Seniors Series program, local novelist CeCelia Zorn and author Mary Heimstead will present “Write Your Obituary: You Get the Last Word” on Wednesday, March 6 from 3:45 to 5 p.m.
How might you have your last say? In an obituary, that is. Learn how to write a narrative that includes necessary information but is also personal, concise, and memorable. This relaxed class will include specific parts and common characteristics of an obituary as well as media considerations. A full handout with many helpful details and examples will be provided.
“Savvy Seniors Series,” is a free monthly information session that is open to the general public and is held at The Classic at Hillcrest Greens. Each session features a different speaker with a message focused on enhancing the quality of life for seniors. Light refreshments will be available along with door prize drawings. Registration for the March 6 presentation is required by calling 715-839-0200 by Monday, March 4.
