If you are writing the obituary for your former spouse, we suggest teaming up with another family member to help you fill out some of the details you might not have access to.

Follow our free How to Write an Obituary guide or purchase our Obituary Kit for help.

If your question is how to include an ex-wife, ex-husband, or former spouse in an obituary, here are some guidelines to follow:

If the deceased person has remarried, the current spouse should be listed first in the survivors, followed by the children and parents of the deceased person.

If you wish to list former spouses with the survivors (and this is totally up to the family to decide), these names should be listed after the immediate relatives.
