Ask a Mortician

Thank you so much to those folks who attended the obituary writing workshops. Great information and wonderful personal stories made it an event to remember.

Part of being a funeral director is the ability to disseminate information in a way that is direct, honest and without judgement. My next workshops, offered on October 19th and 20th at the Racine Arts Council office will do just that.

If you have ever had any questions about death, now is the time to ask! So much misinformation about death and especially about the things you need to know both before and after can make this topic frightening and complicated. Some folks feel foolish for not knowing and others are afraid of the answers.

These workshops will focus on talking about death and the implications to your family, finances and future. Topics to be covered include:

How can I let my family know what I want?

How can I talk about death and funerals without freaking people out?

What goes on during embalming?

Are people in caskets wearing shoes? (See. Not all questions are serious, yet all are valuable. Especially if not knowing causes you concern!)

I will answer questions at the workshops, but if you have a burning concern, feel free to contact me at the Racine Arts Council office (I am always there on Fridays from 10:00 a.m. until noon.) and I will be happy to ease your mind. No question is off limits and I will do my best to answer them honestly and with the amount of detail with which you will be comfortable.

Drop me an email at if you have a question and I will include it in the presentation. If you miss the workshop, I will post highlights afterward.

Stop in on Friday October 19th at 10:30 a.m. or Saturday October 20th at 10:30 a.m. The Racine Arts Council office is located at 409-6th Street in downtown Racine Wisconsin.

Can’t wait to hear from you!
