How to Make a Graceful Exit & Survive the Loss of the One You Love

Dee Oliver should know a little bit about the business of death. When she married her husband, Johnnie, she married into four generations of a family of funeral directors going all the way back to the Civil War. It was only natural that she would become a part of the family business, too. Despite years of helping other folks plan for their final wishes, it was Johnnie’s untimely and unexpected death in 2007 that brought reality square in the face for Dee.

Who's Talking

John D.

"Just got this book and it is great! It immediately puts you at ease with a subject most would prefer to avoid. Dee, as the widow of a funeral director, and now a funeral director herself takes you through all of the various details that you will face at one time or another - and how you can ease the grieving process for your loved ones left to plan your funeral - and let them know how you would want your final arrangements to be handled. She accomplishes this in a very common sense manner with a healthy dose of humor to lighten an otherwise difficult process."


The Undertaker’s Wife

Part memoir, part how-to book, The Undertaker’s Wife offers insights on grief, survival, and the ever-present faithfulness of God. Sometimes poignant, sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, Dee’s story helps readers prepare for one of life’s only certainties–and do it with wisdom, grace, and a healthy dose of joy.
