“A new funeral business has opened its doors in North Vancouver that wants to take a fresh approach when it comes to discussing and dealing with death and dying.

Koru is a Vancouver-based funeral business that specializes in tailored cremation, burial and ceremony services, such as do-it-yourself funerals, home services, and green burials.

A North Vancouver branch was opened in the Lonsdale neighbourhood in August.

Wendy Rée, the new branch’s owner and funeral director, says her goal is to ensure the business eschews some of the standard conventions of the industry.
