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

Boyd M.

"Mrs. Oliver has given us the list of "What to Do" before one spouse (or close family member) passes so the survivor will know what to do, especially during such a vulnerable time. She had to learn the hard way as her husband died suddenly one night. Written with character, grace, charm and humor, she has taken a rather morbid subject and turned it into pleasurable reading. From putting both names on the utility bills and bank accounts, picking out burial plots, what to say (and not to say), to telling your spouse about each key on your key ring, she has itemized the things that everyone needs to know. Then she tells of the Do's and Don'ts regarding what the survivor's first year or so after passage of their loved one. Great advice!"


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.
