Sunshine Coast Funeral Celebrant

Carolynn Joy Gracie Celebrating a Life Well Lived

As your Sunshine Coast funeral celebrant, I will sensitively work with you to establish:
• the history of your relative or friend
• the significant events in their life
• their passions and interests
Each uplifting funeral ceremony is as unique as your loved one was.
As I believe that the healing process starts with the funeral ceremony I will listen with a caring and compassionate heart to all you have to say so that the words spoken truly reflect the personality, character, and beliefs of your loved one. I also encourage friends and family of the deceased to take part in the ceremony.
Funeral Ceremonies Fee $300
Fee includes:
Pre-Ceremony – Initial meeting and planning session
Further meetings and communication with you via email phone or Skype until you are completely satisfied
Preparation of your personalised ceremony
Presentation of a memento bound copy of the ceremony to keep your memories fresh
I have the qualifications and life skills to gently guide you during this emotionally charged time, whilst giving every consideration to your own privacy and personal needs.

A Dove Release at a Funeral or
Memorial Service is a healing and peaceful tribute;
A beautiful way of expressing a final goodbye… wonderful closure.


There are few things in this world more painful than the loss of a child.
Memorialising a miscarried, failed IVF, terminated or stillborn child
(even months or years after the event) offers much comfort to parents and family who are mourning their loss.
It’s a True Loss – So It’s OK to Grieve
Your ceremony will be about remembering your child and how special he or she was to you and your family. This offers freedom from unresolved grief, a letting-go of unneeded guilt, and an opportunity to remember the blessing of a short-lived life to create an atmosphere where healing can begin.

Pixie Parrott’s Funeral – “I had no prior experience with a death in the family and had to make all the arrangements (for my mother’s funeral) myself. Carolynn became “my rock”, advising me in her calm and efficient way on all aspects of a service. She was very friendly but very professional and took great care to ensure I was comfortable with all the final arrangements.
On the day of the funeral service, I think mourners were delighted with Carolynn as the Celebrant – I know the members of my family were. Everything went smoothly and according to plan. I am confident that anyone who used her services as a Celebrant would find they have made an excellent decision and I would be pleased to talk to any prospective clients.” (Beverley Parrott)

To Whom It May Concern – This email is a confirmation that Carolynn Gracie officiated at the Funeral of Mrs. Rosemary Parrott on the 3rd. June 2006. Also, that Carolynn conducted the service in a competent and compassionate manner.
Carolynn’s manner and presentation was professional in every aspect.
