Tender Funerals Gippsland Team
Community Activator/ Director
Beginning as a Death Doula to try and sneak in the back way to a nursing home during the peak of covid (it didn’t work!) is what led Kellie on her mission to find a place where death and dying was an open and progressive place for all.
There are many ways to complete end of life rituals and working throughout the death industry, she was yet to find them. During a Redesigning Death Care conference in Melbourne, Kellie met up with
Sam from Tender Funerals and realised that this was a model that offered much of what she felt was missing from our death and dying today.
With her passion and many supportive people along with her, Tender Funerals Gippsland Limited has a very progressive Board, a dedicated Working Group and many Volunteers to create the facility
Gippsland has been wanting.

Jennifer comes to the Tender Funerals Gippsland Limited Board with a wealth of knowledge and experience in management, culture, arts and history.
Now retired, Keith is free to spend time on an interest he has harboured since the age of 10. He developed a knack for taking a good photo from an early age and is now generously allowing Tender Funerals Gippsland to utilise the shots he so carefully plans out, to be used so all Gippslanders can be represented on our website
