About

For two decades, Lifetime Celebrations by Washelli has helped Seattle families plan personalized events that tell unique stories of unique lives. We offer the convenience and accommodations for you to celebrate all of life’s events—whether hosting a retirement party, organization event, party, celebration of life or any other event, our dedicated and professional staff can assist you.

Lifetime Celebrations by Washelli will help you plan your event and alleviate the stress of coordinating schedules and deliveries, coordinating food and beverages, editing videos and renting audiovisual equipment, or setup and cleaning– we can take care of all of this for you.

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.

Cremation services in Seattle

We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our transparent pricing. With expertise in scattering ashes and a friendly team who pays attention to every detail, we provide service that is second to none. And now we offer both traditional flame cremation and water cremation.

More and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with the many options:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.

For those who wish for a more momentous memorial, Neptune Memorial Reef® is an underwater cremation garden off the coast of Florida. A Celestis Memorial Spaceflight takes ashes into space for a little while or forever.

There are many cremation providers—and they're not all equal. Here's what you can expect when you choose us for your loved one's cremation:

  • Custody of care guaranteed. Our custody-of-care program helps safeguard the identification of your loved one from the time we bring them into our care until the time we return them to your family. We check, cross-check and check again, every step of the way.
  • Exclusive custody of your loved one. We use only crematories owned and operated by Dignity Memorial® providers or trusted partners. Once your loved one is in our custody or that of a trusted partner, they’re in our care until they’re returned to your family.
  • Licensed, certified, conscientious staff. All Dignity Memorial crematory operators are licensed and certified by Cremation Association of North America, or CANA. Only one person at a time is cremated, and the cremation chamber is thoroughly cleaned before the next person is cremated.

 

Now offering human composting

A new choice for nature lovers, conservationists and those who want to protect the planet for future generations, human composting is an alternative to burial and cremation. Inside a vessel created especially for this purpose, organic elements, such as wood chips, mulch and wildflowers, gently transform a body into nutrient-rich soil. Your family may choose to use this soil to plant trees or flowers, or you can place it in a location meaningful to you. The remaining soil is sent to conservation land on the Olympic Peninsula to aid projects such as reforestation, improving soil health and restoring challenged ecosystems.
