WCCO reporter Darcy Pohland died at age 48 in her Mendota Heights, Minn., home.
WCCO does a nice job with the obituary. It really follows the margarita glass concept we talked about using in class for writing obituaries. There's a good amount of information about her life, along with memorable quotes she said throughout her life.
The Star Tribune also does a really nice job of capturing Pohland's life in a few simple grafs. The only difference between this story and the one run by WCCO, is that the Star Tribune focused a lot on how Pohland's disability never got in her way while doing her jog as a reporter. It was a different more inspirational, in my opinion, take on her life.
