ABOUT LAUREN​

Lauren Richwine is certified through the Earth Traditions Death Midwifery Program and has been trained in the “Respecting Choices Advance Care Planning” Facilitator Program through Parkview. She is currently a member of both the National Home Funeral Alliance and The Order of the Good Death. In 2019 she was selected to be a recipient of the Fort Wayne SOUP micro-grant for her presentation on the unique legal challenges individuals encounter when funeral planning in the state of Indiana.

Whether she guides you through pre-planning, helps observe an animal companion’s death at home, or ensures that you aren’t taken advantage of by the funeral industry, Lauren brings her whole heart to the moment. She previously volunteered with Heartland Hospice and has served the Northeast Indiana region for four years.
