Welcome and thank you for inquiring about Coastal Funeral Celebrant. As a certified Funeral Celebrant, I create and deliver a funeral service, memorial service or tribute, celebration of life, graveside/interment services and funerals throughout central and northern Vancouver Island.

I spend time interviewing members of the family learning about the deceased’s personality and lifestyle. While also working with the Funeral Home, my goal is to ensure that all individuals have the opportunity to participate in a meaningful ceremony when someone they love dies. It is an honour and privledge to work with families during this most difficult time. I spend as much time as necessary to produce a unique and personalized service. The meaningful end-of-life ceremony is a vital part of the healing process.

What is a Funeral Celebrant?

A Funeral Celebrant is trained and certified to work with families and the Funeral Home to plan a unique and personal memorial, funeral, life tribute, a graveside/interment of loved ones. More people are seeking unique and personal ways to honour the deceased and say good-bye.

I offer a non-denominational alternative for families who are not affiliated with a church or who do not wish to have a traditional religious funeral service. I also offer an extension of a religious service to provide a personalized tribute or memorial for family and friends.

The end-of-life ritual and ceremony may or may not be religious in nature. It is very important to create a ceremony that reflects the wishes, beliefs, cultural backgrounds and values of you loved one and the family. You have complete choice and final approval over the ceremony.

You are part of the planning that reflects the wishes of the family and deceased. A Celebrant honours death and celebrates life and is trained to co-produce and deliver a well-planned, coordinated service.

Certified Funeral Celebrant

As a Certified Funeral Celebrant, I am familiar with funeral, memorial and life tribute rituals. All faith and traditions are honoured. A celebration of life service should be what family and friends want as a service. The goal is to have a beautiful and memorable service your loved ones deserves. A service that is designed with compassion, loving care and understanding. I orchestrate each ceremony with professionalism and understanding, and always respecting the importance of your participation and contributions to arrive at a unique, quality ceremony.
