Lin Cressey, Certified Life Celebrant

funeral officiant, end-of-life tributes, memorial services, committal ceremonies, grief counseling, grief companioning As a Celebrant, my focus is that of creating respectful and meaningful end-of-life tributes that honor the life of your family member or friend. I meet with families to gather information about deceased—everything from their biographical data to their childhood experiences, personal anecdotes, their work, hobbies and interests, the music and books they enjoyed to who that person was, what they stood for and what they meant in the lives of their friends and families. I work with you to weave together personal stories and eulogies with symbolic elements, music and readings to intentionally commemorate and celebrate life.

If you wish to write or participate in preparing your own funeral, memorial or celebration of life ceremony, I would love the opportunity to hear your story and create a ceremony with you and for you as well.

My intent is always to involve friends and family in presenting a culturally-sensitive service that will touch hearts and bring hope as well as the beginning of healing. Every family sees the entire written ceremony from prelude music through final disposition prior to the service and has final editorial approval. I provide music cue sheets for the funeral home staff to facilitate our work together in providing a professional and polished service. In the days following the service, I present families with a beautiful keepsake copy of the ceremony.

As you think of final commemoration services in your own life or in honor of a beloved family member or friend, I would be honored to create with you an End of Life, Celebration of Life, Funeral, Memorial Service, Graveside or Committal Ceremony that is a loving, hopeful and heartfelt tribute to life.










“Thank you so very much
for your empathy and compassion as you guided
us through the services for our beloved husband and father. You touched our hearts and will be remembered forever!"

“Again, I want to tell you what a wonderful job you did at my aunt’s memorial service. You made it so personal. There were a lot of things I had forgotten. Thanks again for all that you have done.”
