CEOLP monthly meeting

March 11, 2020 @ 7:00 pm 7:00 pm

Many inquiries come in to Informed Final Choices (IFC) and the Crestone End of Life Project (CEOLP), and the CEOLP/IFC boards would like to give everyone the benefit of our replies. So here is some information you may find useful about the services of these sister organizations.
Does CEOLP support choices such as natural burial or conventional cremation?
Yes. The CEOLP volunteers are available to assist the deceased’s family or legal representative with implementing a family-directed home funeral and/or natural burial ceremony. CEOLP volunteers offer the same services for those wishing to have the deceased in repose at home, to be later transported by a mortuary service or the family to a location for either conventional burial or cremation.
How do I register with CEOLP?  If I have registered with CEOLP, how do I make edits or additions to my paperwork?
Denise Peine is the current CEOLP registrar. You can request forms by calling Denise at 719-256-4644 or by visiting our website,, where the forms are available for download. These are in PDF format so they can be completed online and then downloaded and printed.
If you want to make changes to your previously completed registration forms, contact Denise or send the changes to her attention at: CEOLP Registrar, PO Box 1238, Crestone CO, 81131.
How do I learn more about completing Advance Directives, Patient’s Rights, writing Legacy Letters or setting up a care circle? 
Informed Final Choices is currently sponsoring an 8-week course called LeaveLight, which meets every Saturday through February from 10:30am to 12:30pm at the Baptist Church Fellowship Hall. The LeaveLight guide/workbook provides a holistic view of how to complete end-of-life documents such as living wills and preparatory tasks including making decisions about the type of disposition or memorial ceremony you might want. To learn more about participating in the course or purchasing a workbook, contact Marcella Friel,
