Funeral Options 2.0

This session is part of King County Library System's year-long educational series, "Death, an Online Education Series."

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 (aquamation/water cremation), natural organic reduction (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.

Reach out to if you have accommodation requests, or to our KCLS host, Beatriz Esparragoza, if you've got questions.
This event is sponsored by the KCLS Foundation.
