Writing An Obituary

An Obituary

At Gerst Funeral Home, we have been supporting families in the Grand Rapids area since 1885. Our goal is to walk with families through every step of the funeral planning process. 

An obituary is a written piece to honor and announce the passing of a loved one. This is an opportunity to give a view of someone’s life and the legacy they leave.
