[Death Careers Week] What's a Guy Like Me Doing in a Place Like This? Funeral Directing!

Thursday, September 30, 2021
12:00 pm1:30 pm

In this 4th Death Careers Week session, long-time fixture of The Co-op Funeral Home, funeral director Chris Ronk, shares his journey to a wonderfully fulfilling career. From his early childhood experiences in a large, Catholic family who valued traditional to-dos, to his discovery that simple services can also be just as dignified and meaningful, Chris will discuss how he developed a gentle attitude toward the truth that death is the culmination of each life. This discussion should be undoubtedly thought-provoking and encourage self-reflection for those also interested in funeral directing.

Members are welcome to this brand-new session for $5, nonmembers for $10. The recording of this session and presenter materials will only be available to you if you register, so grab your seat now!
