Sample Eulogies For Sister
Eulogy 1 (To sister from brother):
It is with great sadness that I stand up her today. When my sister, Katharine, passed away unexpectedly last week it was devastating, but I immediately began to put some words on paper. Writing this eulogy to my sister has helped me deal with the grief and I hope it can help you too.
My sister and I were close in age; she was only two years younger than me. Because of this we shared a lot of the same friends and were very close. Katharine was a very bright girl who was successful at whatever she attempted. She excelled at school and graduated from high school with honors and went on to earn a degree in mathematics from UCLA. She immediately enrolled in law school and got her law degree. She loved her job working as a prosecutor in Los Angeles.
Even though my sister was a brilliant person who was very strong willed I always looked out for her. I was happy to help her whenever she needed me, even though she was usually determined to solve problems on her own. I remember in high school how devastated she was when her boyfriend and her broke up because they went to different universities. I had never seen her so upset and I was glad that I could be there for her.
Katharine married a few years ago and her husband Mark is a great man. They have a three-year-old girl, Julie, who is lucky to have such a great father. As her godfather I will be there to help whenever needed and help her understand and learn about her mother who was such a wonderful woman.
My sister was a hard worker but enjoyed her free time. You could often find her in her organic vegetable garden or out with her girlfriends shopping. She loved her family and friends very much. I spent many weekends at her house at one of our fabulous BBQ’s.
It is so sad that Katharine’s life ended so early in such a tragic way. It is hard to accept that she will no longer be with us. She had a loving family and friends and a brilliant career. No one was prepared for this tragedy and it can be difficult to understand how life works sometimes. Take solace in knowing that Katharine is now in heaven. Her memory will live on in our hearts forever. We will all be proud of her accomplishments forever and will never forget how wonderful a person she was. God bless you.
Eulogy 2 (To sister from sister):
I am so happy to see so many people here today paying tribute to my sister, Jenny. If you don’t know me, I am her younger sister Alexis.
Jenny was the best sister that anyone could have asked for. She was eight years older than me and people often asked me if I had wished we were closer in age. I always told them that I loved having a much older sister. Growing up our mother and father both worked and my sister spent a lot of time looking after me. Even though at times she was a mother figure, she always treated me like a sister.
We had so much fun together over the years. When I was a little girl even though she was older than me she would always play dress up, have tea parties or play with dolls with me. As I grew up I learned a lot from her. Jenny was very athletic and she taught me a lot about how to play sports and competition. She was a star volleyball player at high school and through university. I am happy to continue on the tradition and am playing volleyball in college.
My sister taught me a lot of other useful skills. I learned a lot about boys from her. When I had trouble with boyfriends I knew that I could talk to her about my problems. She always had a shoulder to cry on and had great advice that lifted my spirits. She was a very humorous person as well and whenever I was feeling down she could easily put a smile on my face.
It is so tragic to think about Jenny’s untimely passing. She was such a bright, kind-hearted, determined and caring person. She was just starting out her career as a high school teacher and volleyball coach. Even though she had only taught for a few years I know that she had already positively touched the lives of so many students.
Her life was cut far to short, but during her time on earth she touched so many people. Her memory will live on in all of our hearts forever. Jenny we will all miss you. God bless.
