Faculty - Diane Gansauer

Diane Gansauer
TEACHES: Funerals

Diane has been a life-cycle celebrant since 2013. She is also one of the few celebrants in the Rocky Mountain region that has earned the Masters level of certification through the Celebrant Foundation and Institute, in acknowledgment of her work establishing a celebrant program and also her work as the founder and owner of Lyrical Life Ceremonies, Ltd., through which Diane officiates weddings. Diane was also ordained as an interfaith minister by The New Seminary, the oldest interfaith seminary in the United States. She is the Director of Celebrant Services for the Olinger/Dignity Memorial and Advantage funeral homes in metro-Denver. She has held one of the few full-time funeral celebrant positions of this kind in the United States since 2013 and is glad that the number of full-time funeral celebrants is growing! Prior to becoming a celebrant Diane worked in the field of wildlife and land conservation for more than 20 years. In her leisure time she is a long-distance hiker, having completed more than a third of the 3000-mile Continental Divide Trail, much of it solo. She is married, with one daughter.
