Teaches: Funerals and Ceremonies for Healing
Dorry Bless creates and presides at one-of-a-kind ceremonies to mark her clients big moments and those extraordinary in-between moments as well as animal companion tributes. In 2006, Dorry received her Funeral Celebrancy certification, and in 2011 her Certificate in Ceremonies for Families & Children, from CF&I. Dorry has been published in Yoga Journal, Natural Awakenings, and American Funeral Director magazines. She has been a frequent contributor and presenter at the Celebrant Foundation & Institute's annual Collective Wisdom conference and serves as Chair of its Funeral Celebrancy Development Committee and on its Board of Trustees. Dorry received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Rhetoric and Communications from the State University of New York at Albany in 1979. She is married and lives with her husband of 23 years, their daughter and two lively dogs in central west New Jersey. She is grateful that Bless is the last name she was given at birth.
