My name is Joél Simone Anthony. Funeral Service and Mortuary Science are my passions. I am a licensed Funeral Director, Embalmer, Crematory Operator, and Life Insurance agent. I am dedicated to stimulating an open and honest conversation about death and educating the public about the death and dying from a global perspective while exploring non-traditional and alternative funeral and burial practices.
In 2013 I started The Grave Woman Blog. At the request of my subscribers I then started my YouTube Chanel which has allowed me to connect with even more families, individuals and businesses from around the world who share the common goals of talking about death, and grief while supporting those experiencing loss and facing death. I have learned so much from those with whom I have connected but I desire to learn and share much more.
In addition to connecting online I enjoy opportunities that allow me to speak to and educate small groups about pre-planning and funding for funeral and burial. I have been featured in several online and in print publications. I have traveled to conduct interviews with individuals and families of various ethnic, cultural, professional and religious backgrounds.
While there are numerous platforms dedicated to discussing death from multiple vantage points. The Grave Woman is unique it’s in its quest to explore various cultural practices while stimulating an open and honest global conversation about death. The Grave Woman combines professional knowledge with public query.
