Nona Ward is trained and certified to help individuals plan and present personalized memorial, celebration of life, and funeral services.
|As a Funeral Conductor, Nona’s goal is to ensure that all individuals have the opportunity to participate in meaningful ceremony when someone they love passes. Learning to live without the daily physical presence of a loved one is indeed, a journey. Meaningful end-of-life ceremonies can be a vital and integrative part of beginning to heal from loss.
What is a Funeral Conductor?
Nona Ward is trained and certified to help individuals plan and present personalized memorial, celebration of life, and funeral services. Nona is a facilitator, attentive and sensitive interviewer, creative writer, professional public speaker, and ceremonial leader in her role.
A Code of Ethics binds her to maintain confidentiality in her work with individuals and families. Nona has practiced professional communication for 10 years and has been conducting funeral services all over Manitoba.
Funeral Conductors are creative, alternative, ceremonial leaders. Nona is an excellent choice for those who want to honour the life of a deceased loved one through participatory end-of-life ritual and ceremony. Ceremonies that may or may not be religious in nature, but that are both deeply moving and meaningful for those who are bereaved.
Nona has been preaching for 10 years and can do a religious service, but an increasing number of Canadians say they are non-religious and may define their spirituality in different ways: A funeral, memorial or celebration of life service that reflects an individual’s lifestyle and personality, that often mirrors his or her spiritual nature. Nona understands and loves that we live in such a diverse county and is able to perform whatever kind of ceremony that the family wishes.
Friends and family often wish to participate in the planning and presentation of a personalized end of life ceremony, but are uncertain how to do so. They may be uncomfortable with public speaking and/or speaking publicly about death and loss, but Nona's job is to help them every step of the way.
