The Story of  ObitKit
ObitKit, Susan Soper: my inspiration for writing ObitKit, Dorothea Smith Moeller
Dorothea Smith Moeller
ObitKit was created in 2009, inspired by my grandmother, who left a packet of instructions for me, her executor, to follow when she died in 1981:
Stop the paper and the milk. What friends to call. Name and phone number of minister; hymns, prayers and the NY cemetery information.
What a gift! Since then, I’ve written obits for friends and family members and know the comfort and value of having accurate information at hand when it’s most needed. When my dad died in 1996, I had to write his obituary in the middle of the night with nothing to reference and no clues to what kind of burial or service he wanted. ObitKit was inspired by these two people so dear to me.
