THE DYING TRADITIONS AND NEW LIFE OF OREGON'S FUNERAL INDUSTRY
One hundred percent of the people you meet in your lifetime will die. Every last one, yourself included. How many other human experiences can you assign that kind of number to in history?
So what if your final act could be a gift to the planet? And what if that final act could empower you to make choices concerning after-death-care while avoiding the economic burdens of the past history of the funeral industry?
Local mortician Elizabeth Fournier will lead a lively discussion of the historical events that have helped change the landscape of the funeral industry here in Oregon. She's the owner and undertaker of Cornerstone Funeral, the first green funeral home in the Portland Metropolitan area.
