MEDIA RELEASE: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Monday April 3, 2017, Ashburton - A new funeral home called Memory Funerals will open for business at 22 Moore Street. Memory Funerals is set opposite the New World supermarket and is fitted out with a modern and cosy touch.
Owner of Memory Funerals, Jo Metcalf has over nine years’ experience in the funeral industry.
Canterbury born and bred, Jo now lives in Ashburton. Being locally based enables Jo to be personally involved in the practicalities of the business.
She has a special knack of remembering each and every funeral.
Jo says she has focused on a boutique style offering because she never wants her client to feel on a time limit, or like a number. She’s focused on being extra careful and considerate in a time that’s very raw in people’s lives.
Her aim is to pick up on the little things that can go unnoticed at a busy time, she says.
“I’m flexible about tailoring a funeral specific to the person and family. And I’m happy to guide those who aren’t quite sure”, says Jo.
Her unique approach was inspired by all the families she’s served in her career. “It’s the family’s ideas and unique solutions that inspire me”, she says.
Jo says her service doesn’t have to finish after the funeral. She is open and welcoming to clients coming back in for a coffee down the line, she says.
