Obituary Analysis

The New York Times reported that Shannon Tavarez, the 11-year-old who played Nala in Broadway's "The Lion King," died of leukemia Monday.

The obituary had a standard lead that worked very well. It included who she was, why she was notable and how she died. At the end of the lead it also stated her age.

Sources included were the hospital where she died, the production manager from "The Lion King" and the executive vice president of DKMS America, a bone marrow transplant center. All of the sources contributed to the story by giving little facts about her life, and what she had to go through during treatment.

An obituary is different from a resume because an obituary highlights the person's life, and discuses the person's death, while a resume lists the person's accomplishments.
