Meet Rhonwyn Matthews, White Lady Funerals Bulli location manager
What do you enjoy about your job?
It's an honour walking with people and families through one of the most difficult and painful times of their life and making the funeral as meaningful and significant as possible.
How long have you been a location manager?
I’ve been in the funeral industry for nearly six years and with Invocare for around one year. Before Invocare, I was a funeral celebrant and the ‘Small Group and Welcome & Integration Minister’ at Wollongong Church of Christ. My passion in life is to serve, support, encourage and make a difference to the lives of others in a positive way.
What do you enjoy in your spare time?
Going with my grandchildren and family to church then to a café or Bunnings for morning tea. Also love working in my garden and walking through nature..
What do you like about your local area?
There is nothing better than where I live – between the mountains, the bush and the sea! The strength and grandeur of the mighty hills, valleys and mountains, and splendor of the rivers and boundless seas.
What is the most remarkable funeral you’ve ever arranged?
The most interesting funeral that I organised was a natural burial and a free spirit ceremony. There was singing and dancing to the beat of a drum, various people played different instruments, incense was burnt and people sat on their picnic rugs in the open air.
What charities does your brand support in your area?
We support many different charities and organisations including many of the nursing homes and hospitals in the area. We support Illawarra Women’s Health, Women Illawarra, Zonta Club Wollongong, Bulli Community Centre, and Shine like Charli Annual Charity Ball for Children’s Cancer.
What makes your brand special?
The care, strength and compassion that our White Lady Bulli team gives to people at a time of need and the privilege that we have of serving our community and touching the lives of others in practical and supportive ways.
