The easiest answer to the question of who to include in an obituary is all the people who loved and cared for the person who died.

It’s common to list all immediate family members: spouse, children, grandchildren, parents, siblings, and their significant others. Depending on your family size, you might list aunts and uncles, close cousins, and other relatives. Just be sure not to leave anyone in the immediate family out.
