Beth Murphy spent over 25 years in higher education in eastern Massachusetts, just south of Boston, and recently left that career to begin her own business in what she referred to as “the death and dying industry”. Although her new company, Life-Boxes, LLC, is brand new and is awaiting trademark and patent approval, her business plan is to build and sell “custom cremation caskets”. She plans to sell to funeral homes, distributors, and the public. As a CFSA member, Beth can now use materials from the “Have The Talk Of A Lifetime” campaign that CFSA supports through the Funeral & Memorial Information Council (FAMIC). Beth has spoken with funeral directors and hospice administrators, and would also like to offer “counseling and therapeutic” services to families in the community.
