Funerals & Memorials

Funerals & Memorials

When you say goodbye to a loved one, it’s important to have someone you can trust to stand by your side. It would be my privilege to listen to your stories; to share your memories; and to help you craft a farewell for your loved one, which captures the essence of their character and life. Let me share my experience of helping families create the perfect farewell with you.

What kind of farewell can I give my loved one?

  • a formal funeral (in conjunction with your chosen funeral home)
  • a vibrant celebration of life service at a venue of your choice, such as a local sporting or community hall
  • an intimate parkland or beach side memorial
  • a special scattering of ashes at a significant place
  • a tree-planting ceremony at a private residence or garden

It doesn’t matter if you don’t know what to do or where to start. I will guide you through the process of saying goodbye. Anything is possible, and I would be honoured to help you make the right choice for your loved one.

I have worked with well-respected and renowned Funeral Homes such as Mareena Purslowe, Purslowe Chipper, and Bowra & O’Dea, and would be more than happy to work with your chosen Funeral Director.


Saying goodbye to a loved one is never easy; however, Chelsea made the experience of arranging the memorial details very clear and simple. Her compassion, gentle nature and guidance is like a warm embrace. She understands the connection between the family and departed and conducts a ceremony that not only celebrates the love, but the magic of the life that was once lived.

Thank you, Chelsea, for helping us send Gran off with grace and laughter.
