Robert Culp

This obituary about Robert Culp actually states his cause of death which i think makes it a better article. By having the cause of death listed there is more closure to his life.

It is cool how he stared in many TV shows and movies that i have heard of and seen. The NY Times really knows how to make an obituary into a celebration of life rather than a morbid ending.

Harry Carpenter, the voice of boxing in Britain

In the New York Times Harry Carpenter had an obituary that seemed as if it were a profile. It gave tons of rich background information into who he was and how he got to where he was when he passed away.

This article has the structure we learned in class for how to set up an Obit and it is also very interesting. All the attributions follow the style that is laid out in class. The article is rich with description that makes you feel as if you know Harry even if you didnt.

Elinor Smith, one of the youngest pioneers of aviation

This obituary was laid out as more of a profile looking piece because we get more of an indepth look into Elinor.

This article uses the same attribution structure that we have been learing in class. It show how to state that someone died and the proper way to state what age they were.

Elinor sounds like a very cool woman based on this article and she never took no for an answer. I am sure her book Aviatrix is amazing.

This article is rich with quotes from the past and present that all gives us a great look into who Elinor was when she was alive.

Emily Jasicki

In the Star Tribune there was an obituary for Emily Jasicki.

She was 93 and it is always interesting to see how old people can live to be. The obit was short and to the point. It listed her family members that were still living and talked of the church she was involved in. Service time was listed along with the location. There was very little personal information about Emily herself.
