Obituaries in Reading, PA

As part of the funeral arrangements you plan with us, Lutz Funeral Home in Reading, PA will be pleased to discuss options for obituaries and assist you with this important task.

Lutz Funeral Home provides personalized and professional funeral and cremation services. Through the decades, the commitment of five generations of Lutz family members has remained unchanged, yet our funeral home and cremation services have always responded to the changing needs of the community.

All of our services are designed to help families through one of the most personal and challenging stages of life. We understand that losing a loved one is an emotional and difficult experience, and we are committed to helping families with integrity, unmatched personal service and excellence.

Purpose of an Obituary

Obituaries are notices that inform the public about the death of your loved one, the details of any planned funeral or memorial services that will celebrate their life and, if desired, information about the person’s life and death. Although many families choose to have an obituary published in the newspaper, it is not a requirement.

What Should an Obituary Include?

Writing an obituary is a great honor and a great responsibility. Some individuals choose to prepare their own obituary before death to spare family members from having to do it at a time of grief and stress. Others feel uncomfortable with this idea.

If you are called upon to write an obituary for your loved one, your Funeral Director will help you evaluate your options and provide you with tips for crafting a complete obituary.

In addition to the full name of the deceased, including maiden name and any nicknames by which he or she was known, other helpful information will include:

  • Date and place of birth
  • Date and place of death
  • Date, time and place of viewing, visitation, funeral and/or memorial service (If services will be private, let the public know)
  • Names of survivors
  • Where flowers can be sent
  • Preferred charities for donations

Other information in an obituary could include: education, occupation, military service, memberships in clubs or churches, hobbies and special achievements. Some families also choose to include photographs.

Where Are Obituaries Published?

Many families write short and long versions of obituaries for publishing in different places, such as newspapers, printed funeral programs, and online memorial and tribute websites.

Lutz Funeral Home publishes obituaries on our website for both upcoming funeral services entrusted to our care and those we have provided in the past. Our Fallen Heroes and Veterans' Memorial Walls include the names of individuals who have served the nation and been entrusted to our care.

Since it is not always possible to pay respects in person, we also provide our Book of Memories™ online tribute site where family, friends and neighbors can express their condolences, light a memorial candle, or share photographs and videos.

Obituaries can also be included in printed handouts that are given out during funeral and memorial services to provide guests with a treasured keepsake.

To locate the obituaries for residents of Reading, PA who have been entrusted to our care, visit the Lutz Funeral Home website. If you have immediate need of our services, we are available for you 24 hours a day. Contact us at 610-376-7121.
