It is HARD to accept the death of a loved one. We all wish we had the power to make death go away from the face of the earth forever and never return. We wish to live on earth without losing anyone dear to us. But sadly, death is inevitable. The death of an aunt leaves a huge void in our hearts that only time can heal. We pray that the soul of your late aunt will find peace and always watch over you and your family.
We feel your pain and sincerely sympathize with you. Below, you will find a collection of tributes for late aunt. We hope it guides you as you write a heartfelt tribute to your aunt.
Sample Tribute To Dead Aunt
Tribute To My Sweet Aunt.. She was my children’s favorite and we all loved her. This was the aunt who loved like a mother, though she never had children of her own.
After the initial shock of her sudden passing, my thoughts turned toward the challenge of comforting my son and daughter. She had offered them spiritual guidance. She had shared hours of fun and laughter with them. She had treated each one like her own.
Certainly, she deserved a tribute which registered her special qualities, and would help the children remember the good times they shared. Thanks to my Muse for helping me rise to face every challenge. Your death is a huge loss to us, but we will hold on to all the memories we created together. Adieu Aunt!
To all the children who came for her food;
She filled their stomachs and filled their hearts;
She taught them ‘bout God for their own good.
No one called her Mom, at least not out loud,
But none doubted the love she was showing;
The kids loved her too, and cuddled with her
When she taught them the lessons worth knowing.
In the days, months and years that lie ahead,
When we talk about how things used to be,
Some will say this, some will say that
But on these things we’ll have to agree:
Our aunt was godly, and wise, and fun;
The best sister, homemaker and friend;
And in the hearts of her nieces and nephews
She’ll be special from now till the end. Goodbye Aunt!
Aunt you have left a remarkable legacy here on earth. Know that you will never be forgotten and always loved by all of us in the family. I was so privileged to have you as my very special aunt that meant so very much to me, you were such an important part of our family. If only we could have you here longer, your time was so short while you were here with us. I am so grateful that some day I will see you again and get to spend eternity with you. Adieu Sweet Aunt!!
It’s hard to put into words how I feel about my Aunt’s passing. Of course the natural emotions of loss and nostalgia are all over me, but there’s something else. A strange sense of frustration as I try to bring to mind her facial expressions, her voice and most of all her personality. We were robbed of all or most of that. Years ago as multiple sclerosis ravaged her body. How can we not feel a sense of unfairness? The utter waste, as each year more of aunt disappeared.
I can’t help wondering why it is that some are snapped up in an instant. They’re here one moment and then their gone. Why others linger, trapped in a body that no longer serves their soul, and we mourn each lost faculty, one heartbreaking moment at a time.
You won’t hear me reciting familiar, age old Psalms about comfort and peace. I won’t justify it all with a simple, God works in mysterious ways or she’s in a better place. Not because I don’t feel those things, I do. As a matter of fact I envision my aunt painting, moving her brush across the canvas of the sky, tilting the light between the leaves just right. I feel her warmth in the sun on my face, the squeeze of her hand as I caress my child as he sleeps.
I don’t have any answers. Any more than I understand the suffering around the world and how a loving God could stand by, let alone watch. I’m saddened by the greed and pride that wreak havoc on our world. It’s easy to feel despondent, lost upon the sea, as others yell their judgements, calling unbelievers sinners and puff themselves with pride that they have all the answers.
But I don’t need any simple answers. I don’t need to understand all the mysteries of why some are born with sight and others never see. I’m content with what I know. Which isn’t very much.
When I think of my Aunt, I think of light. How her life, however stifled it appeared, still brought joy to those around her. She may not have been famous or discovered something new, but her energy of spirit drove all that’s right about this world.
So when I’m sad or frustrated I can think of my Aunt who always made me feel so special, like a little princess in her care. I remember sitting still in a chair as she gently brushed my hair and pinned it up. She whispered in my ear how fun it was to have a girl since my cousins were all boys. Once or twice I popped into their church service and surprised them with a visit. She introduced me proudly, beaming ear to ear. I will never forget her artistic eyes, always bright and open wide as if she didn’t want to miss a moment of the beauty of this world. There was an energy within her, a light that never wained. She gifted that to us, to all of us that knew her. I’m proud to carry a small part within my heart.
Aunt you have been on my mind for the last few months and I regret not reaching out, there was something I was sensing, a kind of soul connection. I hope someday, when I feel those tugs of spiritual communion, I’ll be more inclined to act. I want so badly for her to know how much her life meant to me. But sadly she has gone to be with the Lord. We love you sweet aunt and you will forever live in our hearts.
She was a wonderful person and I loved her. My world would be different without her in it.She was my mother’s brother’s wife who inhabited my earliest memories very prominently. She was fun, great fun. Come vacation and she’d come home and take me to her home where i had female cousins around my age with whom i could have girlie talks and games. (i grew up among six boys. My sister, was already across the seven seas by the time i was six).
She used to spend lots of time with us, the small girl’s gang and make us laugh, and laugh at all our stupid stories and the silly things we said and did.
And she was a GREAT cook. The greatest I’ve met, I’d say. She’d announce the special dish she was planning to make and get us all highly excited. Memories. Of the lovely days i spent in my aunt’s house are nrxt to none. And her narrative skills were simply incredible. She’d have us all agog with suspense one moment, then have us dissolve in uncontrollable laughter.
She was a unique person and i loved her. I was her niece, but i have always felt that she loved me like her own daughter.
And it breaks my heart that I’m so far away that I can’t be there to bid her the final good bye.
I don’t think I’ve ever thanked my aunt for everything she’s done. I want to thank her for believing in me when I don’t think no one else did. I want to thank her for teaching me how to write, do math, read, and the value of having an education at an early age. I want to thank her for the multiple whoopings and the explanations for those whoopings. Thank you Auntie for influencing my brand of humor and making me smile when I needed it. Thank you for blessing me with your collection of old blues and soul records because those records have influenced my brand of storytelling. Last but not least, thank you for loving me unconditionally. Your memories will live through me.
Since my aunt’s death, I made the decision to live my life without any regrets. No more shoulda, coulda, wouldas. Less words, more actions. My aunt spent her sixty-one years on this earth doing exactly what she wanted to do(in my mind anyway). I want to spend the rest of my time on this earth doing exactly what I want to do. No more fear. No more doing what people think I should do.
It took my aunt’s death to wake my mind up and smell the roses. Auntie I feel you and I hear you. I will continue to make you proud. Adieu darling aunt.
I am honored to say a few words about my Aunt (insert name). She was a cheerful, fun-loving lady who was full of life. Her smile could light up a room and it was infectious. She made everyone around her happy. Whether it was a funny joke, her positive attitude, or her big smile, she was a delight to be around.
As a child I remember visiting my aunt almost every weekend. My mother and her sister were very close, which meant we got to spend a lot of time with my cousin, aunt and uncle. My aunt was a kid at heart and loved to play with my cousin and I. I remember games of hide and seek in her yard, or playing with my cousin’s large collection of toys.
As I got older my aunt always made an effort to stay involved in my life. She was there at my university graduation, was at my wedding and was one of the first people to visit me when my son was born. I really appreciated how much she cared and knew I could always count on her for anything I needed.
My aunt taught my cousin and I a lot of valuable skills over the years. She was an incredible cook and gardener. She taught us how to grow our own vegetables and how important organic foods were. She always had a new recipe for us to try and we knew that if she was recommending it that it would taste incredible.
When my aunt was diagnosed with cancer it was a very difficult time for our entire family. Aunt (insert name) was such a positive and strong lady she never acted down. She was always encouraging us to cheer up and showing us the positives. I spent a lot of time looking after her, as her disease got worse. I was happy to do whatever I could, because no matter how much I helped her I felt like it was nothing compared to everything she did for me over the years.
I will miss my aunt’s smile and positive attitude. She was an incredible sister, mother, wife and aunt. She will be missed by a lot of people here today. I wish you peace and will always love you. Adieu dearest aunt!!
She was such a kind soul and saying goodbye is really heartbreaking. Aunt i doubt if we will ever be able to get over the pain of your death. Tears would not let me pen down how amazing you were.. All I can say is we are heart broken, but we take solace in the fact that we know you are in a better place, free from sickness and pain.
Goodbye darling Aunt.. We miss you!
Aunt ____________, it is hard to believe that the angels have carried you home at a time we least expected. We hardly take in the fact that your sudden demise has unexpectedly terminated the moments we enjoyed with you. I do wonder if we will ever find anyone to take your place! You left a hollow no one can ever fill halfway.
Auntie, as we always referred you; you are a beautiful flower plucked from the flower bed to be a sweet-smelling savor in the presence of your maker. But it is hard to come to terms with the fact that we will never hear from you again. Sweet memories fill me anytime I remember the advice you found pleasure in sharing with us, they will forever be cherished. We found consolation in you whenever we got downhearted. Your benevolent smile lifted our hearts anytime you were near us. It’s gone now! Never to come back, oh! How sad I feel. You had a healing voice, which was ever heard in your kind words and prayers. The glow in your eyes always sent encouragement to far and wide. Everyone admired your wisdom in solving complex issues any time we sought your input. You were a role model, and now we can proudly say that you left footprints in the sands of time. Aunt, you were calm even when a situation seemed unbearable. Admittedly, we have lost a precious jewel; if death were stoppable, we would have kept it from coming your way.
Aunt _________, you always worked hard, and I believe it is the reason why you were able to raise our cousins as a single mother. Anytime we came visiting your place; we could see you wake early in the morning and report to work to ensure there was food and upkeep for your family at all times.
Aunt, we looked forward to moments when mom would tell us that we were to visit you because we were sure of a delicious meal. The countless times we sneaked from our home to your house to come and say hi are some of the nostalgic moments we cherish. The adventures and hiking we always had whenever we visited your place linger in our minds. Best of all is the instance where we had to pull you up the mountain by the hand to help you get to the peak.
Fare thee well aunt. You fought a good fight and won the race. You left a legacy that will be read through the generations, current and to come. You left a mark in our hearts, that nothing will ever erase. It is indelible in our hearts.
You are a rare gem and will forever be cherished.
Aunt you were the truest, dearest and more like a mother to me. I call you a friend, sister, cousin, mum and also aunt. You were so precious a gift from God, so much beauty, grace, love and patience you possessed. You touched my heart in so many ways, your strength and smile even on dark days made me realise I have an angel beside me.
Aunt you heard Gods whisper, calling you home, you did not want to leave us, You fought so hard. You loved us so much that you held on tight, until all your strength was gone, and you could no longer hold on. Finally you gave your hand to God and slipped away quietly without telling us bye.
I WILL FOREVER SALUTE YOU AUNT, BECAUSE YOU HAVE BEEN THERE ALWAYS TO SUPPORT AND GUIDE ME THROUGH LIFE. GOD GAVE ME THE BEST AUNT IN THE WORLD! YOU TAUGHT ME TO NEVER GIVE UP ON MY DREAMS BUT TO PERSERVERE NO MATTER HOW HARD THE STORMS MAY BE.
I MISS YOU AUNT!
Adieu Sweet Aunt!
