About this Death Cafe

This will be a fun evening bringing people together in a positive and safe setting for open conversation about all aspects of death, dying and living. Not a support group or educational seminar just a chance to talk about death in an effort to enhance life...and of course, to eat cake! We hope to see you there!



About The Young Bereavement Professionals Group

Carrie Bauer has worked in the death, dying, and bereavement field for almost nine years, where she has worked in hospice and has been the Director of Hamilton’s Academy of Grief & Loss since December 2012. Her favorite part of Death Café is creating a space in the community to talk openly about death and grief. 


Carmen Elliott has been working with volunteers and grieving families for nearly a decade with The Ulman Cancer Fund, hospice, and a local grief center. Her favorite part of Death Cafe is listening to the diverse stories and always learning something new!


Buffy Peters started her career of working with grieving people as an avid volunteer with Amanda the Panda and in August 2014 she started as the coordinator of Hamilton’s Academy of Grief & Loss. One of the things she enjoys most about the Death Café is having a safe place where people can openly discuss anything they want regarding death and what ideas the discussion spurs from other participants.
