Diana Stevenson, Funeral Celebrant
Hello, my name is Diana Stevenson, I have been a Funeral Celebrant since 2005.
Having trained as a Marriage Celebrant, I was encouraged to participate in a Funeral Celebrant’s course and I’m so pleased that I did, as I truly believe I found my niche in life, albeit rather later than I’d hoped. Having said that I’m sure my personal experiences in losing people I loved have helped me to be very empathetic and I’m sure, much more worldly and wise.
Each family and funeral service is unique; to me there is no such thing as an ordinary life, every life is extraordinary in its own way. I feel incredibly privileged to be invited into a home at such a difficult time and I hope that from my years of experience, through offering some guidance, asking lots of questions and listening I can help you create a respectful, meaningful and touching tribute for your loved one.
I believe that I am both innovative and creative with the ability to offer suggestions to personalise a service in any way to truly reflect the very essence of the person we are saying farewell to.
Funerals today are much more a celebration of life and are no longer restricted to cemeteries, chapels or funeral homes. Over the years I have officiated at services at the family home, on the beach, a golf course, in a field, by the river, in a bridge club, bowling club and football oval – to name a few. I am always willing to think outside the square in order to fulfil a family’s wish for something a little more alternative, but am equally respectful of those who wish to have a more traditional service.
Through these many varied services, along with my years in this specialised aspect of life, the advantage of working alongside (in my opinion) the most professional Funeral Director in Perth in Julie, is of paramount importance. As like-minded women we have collaborated together to create distinctive funeral services that move us from the confines of the past to free-spirited concepts of today and allow us to think out of those boundaries so that we may offer a truly memorable celebration of your loved one’s life, which, like them, becomes unforgettable.
I always endeavour to make myself available to meet with families seven days a week from early morning to 5.00 p.m. and I am contactable by phone or email at any time.
In my own life, I am a Mum of two beautiful daughters and two adorable dogs. I love to cook, travel, read and follow Formula 1 racing.
Choosing a funeral plan
Funeral plans make sound emotional and financial sense. Not only can they protect your loved ones from unnecessary stress at a difficult time, they also ensure that your own wishes are carried out.
We understand the conversation about funeral planning can be very emotional to many individuals and families, so by giving you the information, resources and the options available, we try to take the uncertainty away. Funeral Plan Management offers you two simple options to consider. Whether you choose to pay for the funeral in advance, or set money aside toward the expense, you are always in control, whilst you get on with enjoying your life.
