The DIY Funeral: An Introduction to Home Funerals

Event Type: Adults
Date: 2/25/2016
Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Time: 8:00 PM
 The home funeral movement is once again an emerging death care choice. Many people still recall a loved one ‘laid in state' in the bedroom where they died or the parlor or living room. It was a way of life then and is possible today. This program will address myths that may mislead people when faced with planning a funeral for a loved one or for themselves. Information will be provided to help individuals make choices that can be comforting and that save money.

Zalene C. Corey has been involved in the Home Funeral Movement for more than 20 years. She is currently a board member on the National Home Funeral Alliance non-profit board and the president of Gentle Passages, a small business dedicated to dying with grace and living with passion. The deaths of her own parents have spurred her in her desire to help others find the ‘good death’ for themselves and their family members.
