Who Are We?

Founded in 2019, Deathwives is the passion project of home funeral educator and funeral director Lauren Carroll, and death doula Erin Merelli. We seek to widen the narrative around death and dying, and support our community as we remember how to care for one another until the end. This movement takes a village, and this is ours.
