Meet Sally, Mobile Funeral Director at Simplicity Funerals Newcastle

Sally is our experienced Mobile Funeral Director, covering the Central Coast and Newcastle regions. Her journey in the funeral industry started three years ago, following a career as a promotions marketing manager for a hospitality group. Her decision to move into this role was driven by her desire to care for people in a meaningful way. 

What do you like about being a Mobile Funeral Director?
I love being able to look after client families in the comfort of their own homes and helping through the process of arranging a stress-free funeral is very rewarding to me.

What do you like most about the Newcastle area?
My local area has lots to offer, from the foreshore holding terrific markets, the local RSL where we often are lucky to win a meat tray, plenty of restaurants and friendly neighbours. Our community supports local land care and volunteers to help the local environment.

Why choose Simplicity Funerals?
Simplicity Funerals is affordable, professional, simple and supportive for our families. We treat each family as our own showing empathy, kindness and support. To watch families go through so many emotions on the day of the service, and to see a smile through some tears and a thank you makes my job so special. 

Local venue options

Wherever you decide to hold the funeral, our team will help you arrange a meaningful service in a special place to celebrate your loved one’s life. These are some local options to consider or we can find a venue that is meaningful to your family.
