Ducks in a Row: Funeral Options 2.0

Wednesday, June 21, 2023
3:00 pm4:00 pm

This is part two of a three part workshop, Ducks in a Row. Join us in-person at Aljoya Thornton Place for one or all three of the classes! This event is open to the public and registration is free, but required as seating is limited.

Do you know what your disposition options are in Washington State and what they cost? Have you ever wondered about green burial options? This presentation will equip you with the information to select funeral arrangements that fit your unique values and resources. We will explain cremation, burial (conventional and green/natural), alkaline hydrolysis (aka aquamation/water cremation), natural organic reduction (aka terramation/human composting), and full body donation.

Join us for a look behind the funeral industry curtain to learn how to navigate this difficult process and save yourself time and money. Beverly Tryk from People's Memorial Association will present on your options for body disposition in Washington State, the decisions that need to be made when planning a funeral, and the paperwork needed to help get you the care you want.

People's Memorial Association is a Seattle-based nonprofit dedicated to funeral education and advocacy.
