About Shantell Riley:

I am a registered nurse, mom of three young men (my oldest was murdered in 2016), a grandmother to his son who is three. I have an appreciation of death. I have developed a mission to want to ease the burden of others on things related to end of life. I have recently created a nonprofit to assist with enhancing the wellbeing of individuals in underserved communities. 

What brings you to Death Cafe?

I am passionate about helping people be "uncomfortable comfortable" with death and creating space for those wanting to talk about it. I love the model and would love to bring it to my community. 

What would you like your legacy to be?

I would like the community that I reside in to know that people do care.

Thoughts for sharing:

"In a world where people are so divided, death is the one thing we have in common that no one can control."
