If you are writing an obituary for Mrs. Henry LaFayette Dubose of "To Kill a Mockingbird," you will need to make up some things such as her age, to whom she was married, the names of any surviving relatives such as children and what towns/cities they are from as well as who the pallbearers are. (Atticus Finch, e.g.) For, these are always included in the obituaries of small town newspapers.
That Mrs. Dubose battled a long illness would also be included; also, she was known throughout the town for her beautiful camellias. Because she was a staunch Southern woman in her opinions, she was probably a member of the Daughters of the Confederacy. And, with the name Lafayette Dubose, her husband may have been related to the Marquis Lafayette who fought in the American Revolutionary War.
Use your imagination to fill in information not provided, but be sure to make this information "in character" with Mrs. Dubose. Remember that Scout described her as the "meanest old woman who ever lived" because she scolded the children as they walked down the street.
