Cremation: History and Modern Process

November 3, 2018, 3:30pm5:00pm

Amy Cunningham, Green-Wood’s death educator, leads this presentation of cremation’s history and its impact on present-day and future funerals.

This engaging and sometimes light-hearted exploration will touch on how to choose an end-of-life mode of disposition that expresses your own beliefs and values. Afterward, you will have the opportunity to visit the crematory with Gema LaBoccetta, Green-Wood’s Crematory Manager, then chat with Amy and other attendees at a short reception.

Presented as part of Reimagine End of Life, a community-wide exploration of death and celebration of life through creativity and conversation.
