Join us to have a discussion about embalming, burial, burial plots, burial process, and the process for reserving a burial place

DISCLAIMER: Please do be aware that there will likely be discussion of triggering events - please use your discretion in attending this event.

For many, burial is not something considered until a burial is needed. Traditional embalming/coffin burial, green burials, religious burials, and others are distinct and unique choices. Wooster Cemetery's Sexton, Norma Vinchkoski, will guide us as we explore and consider the variety of burial practices available and how they are undergone. From pre-planning to purchasing plots, Norma will give us insight into this process and into the historical treatment of cemeteries. We will also be debunking a number of burial related myths and have ample time for questions and discussion.
