Sarah Wambold is a working class writer and funeral director.
Born in Iowa, educated in Milwaukee and currently based in Austin, TX.
Her work in death care and writing explores the fantasies of a death denial culture, deconstructing them through language and alternative funeral practices.
At Eloise Woods Community Natural Burial Park, she brought visibility to the practice of green burial in Texas, specifically its accessibility and affordability. Her current projects, Conservation Burial and Green Funeral Ideas, strive to expand those concepts on a national scale.
