Funerals & Memorials
So Much to Think About
So Little Time
That’s Where I Come In!
It is my honour to serve families and those who are dealing with the passing of a loved one. An end-of-life ceremony is a beautiful way of saying Thank You and of honouring those who’ve blessed
this world with their uniqueness.
I see my role as a Life Cycle Celebrant as one of collaborating with family and friends to create and facilitate personalized memorials, funerals, celebrations of life, graveside services in the central Ottawa area and Outaouais regions.
As a storyteller, I deeply listen to the stories of the lives involved and I walk with you in organizing your celebration.
I treasure the work of crafting a beautiful
tribute for your loved one.
Family and friends are often overwhelmed at the thought of creating and organizing a funeral or memorial service. When coping with bereavement we are not always fully aware of the many funeral or memorial service choices available.
Times continue to shift and in today’s world, many are choosing to bring their personal beliefs to this important part of the life cycle and working with a Celebrant who will honour their loved-one as well as their spiritual beliefs. It is no longer necessary to have your ceremony facilitated by a traditional minister or by a non-religious officiant. There are many choices in between.
I work with each situation as it presents, whether there is a traditional religious belief, a modern-day approach to spirituality, cultural influences and in cases where there is no belief at all.
Some find it appropriate to include meditations, hymns or other elements that respond to celebrate the life of the deceased; some choose others rituals that are dear to the heart.
