For Ophelia, we know she is young, beautiful, of noble birth, in love with Hamlet, sweet natured, a dutiful daughter, loyal sister, and she loves flowers.  I would probably put a twist on things and write her obit with flowers...each one has a different meaning just as she gave them for "remembrance," etc. 

Check the link here for a few places to look for the meanings of flowers, or go back to enotes and check the character analysis to choose another character whom you like better for your obit.
