PROGRAM:  Evergreen Cemetery
Sean Kelly introduced Peter Cameron who is the general manager of the Evergreen Funeral Home & Cemetery, Cypress Lawn Memorial Park and View Crest Abby Mausoleum. Peter was born and raised in Snohomish. He started working at the local cemetery when he was 15 years old. He has been a licensed Funeral Director and Embalmer for 27 years.
Peter Cameron talked about “Who Wants to Talk About This?”. It is hard to talk about death. It is still a taboo subject for the majority of our society. Peter stated that facing our own mortality is a reality check and can be a difficult conversation with our loved ones.
There are four types of disposition in Washington. The first type is burial. Burial requires a cemetery and can be a ground burial or a Mausoleum crypt. The second type is cremation. Washington State is running about 77% cremation versus burial.
Alkaline hydrolysis is the third type of disposition. This type is sometimes called “Water Cremation”. 75% carbon footprint reduction and 1/8th the amount of energy used.
The fourth type is Natural Organic Reduction and also referred to as “Human Composting”. Natural organic reduction is the contained, accelerated conversion of human remains to soil. Washington State is the first state to authorize this type of disposition.
Reasons why to plan ahead are:
  • How do you want to be remembered? Does your family know?
  • Save them from having to make rushed decisions in a difficult, stressful time
  • Eliminated the financial burden for them
  • Peace of Mind
An Undertaker’s Wish List is:
  • Everything is written down. Keep copies of your wishes, keep your important papers organized including current will, POA/Guardianship, military discharge, life insurance, bank accounts, investments, vehicle & property titles, etc.
  • Everything is paid for
  • Everyone is in full agreement – talk about it ahead of time
  • Please keep your weight under 300 lbs
President John thanked Rakiu, Frank and Micah – Students of the Month, and Peter for being our guest speaker. He adjourned the meeting at 1:00 PM
