Gail Rubin, CT, The Doyenne of Death05-11-20 Death, Funerals and End of Life Plans… Before You Die

As Gail Rubin, CT, The Doyenne of Death®, says, “Talking about sex won’t make you pregnant, talking about funerals and end-of-life issues won’t make you dead.” Especially now, with the Coronavirus and the idea of death and dying being constantly on our radar, many people still balk at the idea of talking about their own death, or the death of a loved one. Which is ironic, because whether it’s from COVID-19 or something completely different, we are all going to die.

Gail is an award-winning speaker and author who uses humor and funny film clips to attract people to topics that many would rather avoid: taking care of advance medical directives, estate planning and funeral planning. Her gift is helping others get end-of-life and funeral planning conversations started with a light touch on a serious subject.

For a touch of humor during some dark and serious times, watch her “Coronavirus Cinema Collections” on YouTube:

Gail pioneered the Death Cafe movement in the United States, hosting the first Death Cafe west of the Mississippi in Albuquerque, New Mexico in September, 2012, and the first Before I Die Festival west of the Mississippi in October, 2017.

She is the author of three books on end-of-life issues and creator of The Newly-Dead Game®, she also hosts the award-winning TV/DVD seriesA Good Goodbye, as well as an Internet radio program. Her award-winning book, A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don’t Plan to Die, provides everything you never knew you needed to know about funeral planning and brings light to a dark subject. She also co-authored Hail and Farewell: Cremation Ceremonies Templates and Tips with Susan Fraser, and the award-winning Kicking the Bucket List: 100 Downsizing and Organizing Things to Do Before You Die.
