A Celebration of Life
An Obituary Guide

Write a Meaningful Obituary and Celebrate the Life of Your Loved Ones

At Gerst, we have been supporting families in the Grand Rapids area since 1885. Our goal is to walk with families through every step of the funeral planning process. 

An obituary is a written piece to honor and announce the passing of a loved one. This is an opportunity to give a view of someone's life and the legacy they leave. 

Here, we want to provide a guide to help you create, write, and build an obituary as a way to celebrate the life of your loved one.
