Meet Christine Wark, White Lady Funerals Bankstown location manager
How long have you been a funeral arranger?
Since 2019, I started as an arranger and then transitioned to White Lady Bankstown where I became the location manager.
Before joining the industry I was a hairdresser, and then in sales, I have always loved having a chat with all different walks of life.
What do you like about being a funeral arranger?
I have always worked in the customer service industry, and I love talking to people and listening to lifelong stories.
Changing my career was a clear choice for me, helping families arrange a farewell for their loved one, I enjoy spending time with them and guiding them through the process and supporting them through an important event at such a difficult time.
The Bankstown area is very culturally diverse, and as a result I have learnt a lot from being a funeral arranger and working with families from different cultural and religious backgrounds. You're always learning something new each day, it's great to have a job with experiences like that.
Lastly, I enjoy meeting some of the most interesting people I've ever met and making wondering friends along the way.
What do you enjoy in your spare time?
Outside of work, I love working around the home, painting and decorating, socialising with friends and going on drives.
What's one thing people don't know about you?
My guilty pleasure would have to be Darelle Chocolate Bullets. I find it hard to stop once they are opened.
What's the most remarkable funeral you've ever arranged?
I have had the pleasure of being a part of a few very remarkable funerals, decorating our chapel with the most extravagant settings. I love that through the generations, the younger family members are following traditions, it's touching to see.
