Celebrations of Life

Meeting Room at Lifetime Celebrations by WashelliLifetime Celebrations by Washelli helps you celebrate a life and share lasting memories of your loved one in a way unlike any funeral home in the Seattle area. Whether you’re planning a funeral for a loved one or pre-planning for yourself, start with a story, passion or pastime to provide inspiration. We'll help you weave those very special memories into a beautiful service with personal touches and lasting impressions. We’ve used antique tractors, hunting and fishing gear, military uniforms and even brought a motorcycle into our event center to celebrate lives well lived.

We have a certified celebrant on staff, similar to a master of ceremonies, to help families bring all the elements together for a meaningful celebration of life. Our professionals believe a celebration of life should be as unique as the person it honors. We are experts at planning meaningful and memorable personalized funeral celebrations. From food to flowers, music to mementos, each customized funeral service is a special tribute to the person it remembers. We celebrate each life like no other.

"Experience and service was great"

September 2020

"Karen, the Funeral Director was the most valuable aspect of our experience. Even during COVID and with no other staff, she was able to answer all of our questions and meet and exceed all our needs. COVID has been a very stressful time for everyone and we feel so very fortunate that Karen was there for us in every way imaginable, all the while taking care of everything all by herself. We will be forever grateful for the care she has shown our family during this difficult time."

"Overall, we were treated with compassion and professionalism from Karen. During a difficult time, she/Washelli was one of the few positive experiences we had, and time and again, her response time and insight were above and beyond what we hoped for -- and all of this during the height of the 2020 virus pandemic. I can't say enough with how pleased we were with all of our interactions we had with Lifetime Celebrations by Washelli."

"Karen Reynolds, the Funeral Director, was thoughtful and very helpful. She made everything easy, provided useful info, and the facts I needed. She was also very compassionate, and gave us options on how to proceed, especially with notification."
