E 76: Normalizing Death: A Conversation With A Mortician
Death is inevitable for all of us, for everyone we love, and for the loved ones of of our family and friends. Often when someone dies we don't know what to do. We might not know how to make arrangements or the choices available. We might struggle with the right thing to say to someone we love who is mourning a loss. Death is a complicated subject fueled with emotion. Here at the UT, we believe that information is power and in that power we can feel a little more comfortable with the most uncomfortable topic.
Christy Chiappone has been a funeral director and embalmer for over 20 years. She knows the ins and outs and gives us some amazing advice and information on what to do when someone dies. Listen in this week as she gives us her story of being called to this very important career and helps us understand all the details surrounding death. Reach out to Christy if you have any questions about the funeral process on Instagram @christychiappone She would be happy to answer them.

I have known Christy since 2nd grade. When my mom passed in 2017, Christy can back to Cincinnati for the services. She never left my side. She stood close enough to let me know she was there and knew what I needed before I did. That’s just who she is. I never would have survived those two days without her. I’m not sure I ever properly thanked her for that. I don’t know that I ever can. I loved listening to her share her wisdom. Thank you for giving her the opportunity.
