This week featured yet another Posthumous Obituary.
Via Politico’s On Media blog:
Betty Ford lives longer than the writer who wrote her obit in the WaPo.
The writer? Donnie Radcliffe. Her obit is here.
Radcliffe joins a growing list of late chroniclers of the late, which includes:
Bob Hopes [sic] Obit writer has been dead for two years!
Elizabeth Taylor Outlives Her NYT Obituary Writer Mel Gussow
And – via The Atlantic Wire – this postbituary:
Philadelphia Inquirer obituary writer Gayle Ronan Sims died two months before an obituary she had written of Ed McMahon was published in June 2009 for the paper.
