Is the place of passing listed in the obituary?


Generally, the place of death is not listed in an obituary because hospices and care facilities have asked not to list their name every time a time a death has occurred, as they can have many deaths in a day or week. As with all elements and rules regarding an obituary they are always flexible and if this is important the funeral home would contact the care facility to confirm that they understand why it is being included.  This is most often done in thank you sentiments later on in an obituary vs listing them as the place of passing.
