About Sherry Gilles and Raymond Anderson

About Sherry Gilles

Sherry Gilles has experienced much death in her personal life over the years and worked for fifteen years on a hospital clinical floor in Indiana. She often took care of the elderly and learned to advocate for those who could not speak for themselves by educating their families, and others, about the importance of discussing end of life options so that the dying person's wishes would be respected. She saw, over many years, how not choosing can lead to futile and painful interventions. In October 2013 she became a Certified Death Midwife.

About Raymond Anderson

Raymond Anderson is a musicologist and historian who lives in Rantoul, IL. He supports the ideals of Death Cafe and helps Sherry in any way he can when she offers a death cafe.
