Now this is how an obituary for a successful woman should be written


I thought of a previous BB thread (probably one of Maggie’s), in which the obituary of a prominent scientist who happened to be a woman was used to show how NOT to do it, when I read this NY Times obituary of Toshi Seeger.


Thanks, hadn’t heard, and I agree, it’s nicely done.


Nice of you to link this.


How lovely and honest, I agree. Especially the honesty felt great.
Even if it, in another obituary, is the other way around. You should simply not forget the things done. And deeds done.
