Helping you create a meaningful, world-class obituary

“To observe attentively

is to remember distinctly.”

— Edgar Allan Poe

Your past few days have been traumatic. You are physically and emotionally exhausted.

You must make a mountain of decisions in a short time.

Now, you’re tasked with writing your loved one’s obituary.

We believe your obituary can be meaningful.

It doesn’t matter if you are writing an obituary for your mom, dad, brother, sister, grandpa, grandma, mimi, papi, extended family, or friend who needs help…

The obituary you write can:


your loved one's unique essence


you and the people who read it


your loved one's legacy to be remembered forever

The biographical obituary is bland and outdated, and doesn’t capture details about your unique loved one.

Your loved one deserves more.

There’s a better way, and it’s The Healing Obituary™.

Capture your loved one's essence

What if you could write a truly meaningful obituary,

AND help heal the void in your heart?

Introducing The Healing Obituary™ workshop, the only online class created by a professional writer and former teacher, based on years of in-person seminar instruction.

The Healing Obituary™ workshop gives you and your group a chance to immediately reflect on the person you’ve lost, and this starts your healing journey.

A Healing Obituary™ includes biographical information, but that information isn't the focal point. Rather, a Healing Obituary also focuses on stories and details that capture your loved one’s unique essence.

These details are uncovered through our HEALING INTERVIEW. We provide the questions that

start your family’s conversation about your loved one. Our interview helps each of you reflect

upon the life story of your person, and to share your memories and anecdotes.

Create an obituary that makes people say, “Wow, I wish I’d known her.”

Hi, I’m Kitty Sheehan, teacher, writer, and the creator of The Healing Obituary™ workshop.

I’ve personally experienced grief in my life, and understand the importance of truly capturing a life story, no matter the circumstances. I’ve learned what makes obituaries meaningful and memorable, and I’ve found a process that truly helps healing. I’ll share my formula with you in this interactive workshop.

I’ve talked obituaries with Conan O’Brien on his podcast, and on several radio shows. I welcome the chance to help you write a detailed, meaningful life story for people you love.

I would be honored to help you write an authentic story about your loved one, a story that is read over and over again, and a story that is cherished by you and your family.

What's inside The Healing Obituary™ workshop?

The Healing Obituary™ workshop is designed to help you write a powerful, meaningful obituary AND gain some peace in your heart as you and your loved ones start your healing journey.

In this online class, I’ll guide you to veer from outdated obituary formats, and shape anecdotes, details, and memories into a meaningful story.

You’ll keep all the biographical stats in the obituary – dates, family names, places – but you’ll also tell the story of a life.
