Who is Roseann Whyte

I am warm, friendly, organised and efficient. However, I am also flexible so I understand that there is value in discussion, taking in people’s needs and wants. I am a good listener and take pride in writing ceremonies that reflect the personalities, beliefs and desires of individuals who have come together and want to express their love for each other publicly in front of family and friends.

I worked for a number of Queensland Government Departments where my responsibilities included developing and implementing business activities which required extremely high level consultation and communication skills. I have also worked in the private sector where I coordinated and managed major events such as conferences for state and national bodies.

I have extensive experience in the areas of marketing as well as assessing and meeting customer requests. I developed strong public speaking, writing and communication skills. As a result, I am at ease working closely with small groups as well as being comfortable addressing large numbers at major functions.

Funeral Ceremonies (Celebration of Life)

One of the highest privileges a celebrant can accept is to be asked to help someone during their time of grief. As a funeral celebrant, my focus is on supporting the family who are struggling to come to terms with the loss of someone very special in their lives.

I listen to the family’s wishes so that I can create a ceremony that is both an appropriate tribute to their loved one while helping in some small way to manage a very difficult time in their life.

I guide them through the format for the ceremony making suggestions for simple rituals and encouraging involvement by choosing poems and music which have meaning to all involved.

With compassion and care, i will ensure your loved one’s funeral is a fitting reflection of their life
