Pay tribute to a remarkable woman by writing eulogies for mothers. Eulogies pay tribute to our loved one and help friends and family members attending the funeral grieve by hearing fond memories and stories about the person.
When writing eulogies to mothers it is helpful to begin by reading a sample eulogy. The sample eulogy will show you how to structure your eulogy and what topics are typically included. Next, you may want to contact your mother’s friends and relatives to collect more information about your mother. Some of her friends and family may not be delivering their own eulogies, but may have stories and memories that they would like included in your eulogy. At the least, they can help you learn more about your mother’s likes, dislikes, hobbies and interests.
Eulogies for mothers typically start with a short introduction or welcome message, then are followed by personal memories, experiences of others with your mother, favorite things, how your mother influenced you and others, and how much she will be missed by everyone.
Eulogies For Mothers (Sample):
It is difficult to believe that my mother is gone. It seems like just yesterday we were sitting at her house drinking tea, knitting, and talking about life. My mother was a wonderful person who cared dearly for her family and friends. Everyone who knew her will dearly miss her.
My mother grew up as the daughter of a CEO of a large national bank. As a result, they moved frequently, wherever her father’s career took him. Even though she had to move often, her bubbly, outgoing and humorous personality allowed her to quickly make new friends. Many of her childhood friends she still kept in touch with up until her passing.
After she finished high school my mother left home and enrolled in the University of Southern California. She graduated with a degree in business, which was a passion she inherited from her father. After university she worked as a manager at a local retail store. It was here that she met her husband, Frank. The two of them fell in love, married, and had two children.
Even though my mother was a very hard worker, she never let her career interfere with her family. She didn’t want her kids to have to move the way she did. My mother made sure she was there whenever we needed and attended all of our sports games, graduations and other significant events.
In her spare time my mother loved to cook and entertain. She often held large parties for her friends and family. She was always the life of the party and loved to sing and dance. In her later years, she still had friends over frequently, to bake, knit or sit around and chat.
I learned a lot from you over the years. You taught me how important a strong work ethic is, but how it is even more important to spend time and care for your friends and family. It is evident how loved you were by how many people travelled from around the country to be here today. I will never forget you. God Bless you.
