PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT For immediate release: May 20, 2021
Washington Funeral Resources & Education @ WashingtonFuneral.org New Public Information Website Makes Washington Home Funeral Information Easy to Find
Did you know that in Washington no one is required to purchase the services of a funeral director or funeral home when a death occurs? Under Washington law, families may conduct many or all tasks commonly performed by a funeral home.
Many people don’t know about the rights of families to care for their dead—even many first responders, care facility and funeral industry pros. That’s why WashingtonFuneral.org, a new, free public information website, is being lauded by medical and funeral industry leaders as a much-needed resource for both families and professionals.
Washington Funeral Resources and Education @ WashingtonFuneral.org is a non-commercial public interest website dedicated to helping Washington consumers care for their own dead with or without the assistance of a funeral director. The site is provided as a public service by White Eagle Memorial Preserve and Sacred Earth Foundation in Goldendale, which coordinates response to inquiries with other Washington-based organizations and practitioners that support the mission of the site.
