Community Outreach & Education
Charmaine’s role with Weeks’ Funeral Homes, is in Community
Outreach & Education, to bridge partnerships with like-minded organizations
in serving our communities. This includes churches of all faiths, veteran and
service groups, first responder chaplains, and hospitals and hospice.
In sharing information and resources about death,
bereavement, and healing, Charmaine’s goal is to help people talk about death
before they need to, find their way through the darkness when death occurs in
their friends and families, and connect with after-care programs to support
their pathway to healing.
Charmaine’s background includes 20+ years as a business
owner, trainer, and consultant in the area of human services and crisis
communication. Throughout her career, Charmaine has served emergency services
and 911 dispatchers, children’s organizations, and faith-based assistance
programs. Her experience with funeral service dates back more than 20 years.
Charmaine is a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors, a
graduate of the Pierce County Chaplains Academy, and a proud member of the
Enumclaw Rotary Club.
Charmaine was born and raised in Minnesota. Early in her
career, she transferred to Washington State, and immediately made it her
