Date with Death Club: Writing Your Own Obituary

Exploring Mortality in Community
Thursday, June 15, 2023, 6:30 pm

Do you want to face mortality with less fear and more curiosity, less euphemism and more reality, less conformity and more creativity?

Facilitated by Rev. Karen G. Johnston, Date with Death Club is a non-dogmatic opportunity to explore mortality in community through connection, reflection, and conversation.

Come to one, some, or all of the monthly sessions. Participation in each session is first come, first served.


Writing Your Own Obituary

Just like planning your own memorial service, you can spend time now putting together your obituary. We’ll explore both traditional obituaries (the kind you are likely to find in the local newspaper) and more story-based obituaries that can help us connect with our own deeper purpose in whatever time we have left on this earth. We’ll use a specially developed worksheet to guide us that you can take home.

Note: Date with Death Club is NOT a bereavement group. For more information, visit the Date with Death Club website:, or visit the Date with Death Club Facebook page.

Location: Highland Park Public Library Meeting Room

Time: 6:30-8:45 p.m.
