Navigating Life After Loss


McNearney-Schmidt Funeral and Cremation
1220 3rd Avenue East, Shakopee, MN 55379

Facing the Holidays after the loss of a loved one can be difficult and feel almost impossible.  We want to help you find tools to make this time of year better for you and your family.

Speaker and author, Donna Mathiowetz believes in leaving a legacy of hope, healing, and forgiveness by sharing her story of loss and grief.  She offers hope as she shares her own journey as well as those of others who she has walked beside.

Please bring a friend or family member and join us on Saturday, November 17th at 10:00 am for a cup of coffee and a 40 min presentation from Donna, followed by time to ask questions and visit with Donna and other friends and neighbors who have also experienced a recent loss.

All who attend will receive a free copy of A Journal for Your Journey.

Life and Death Comedy Show


Prior Lake-Savage Community Education
Prior Lake High School 7575 150th St. W. Savage, MN 55378

Have you had the talk yet? No, not the talk with your kids, but the one with your parents, your spouse, or even yourself. Over 70% of Americans do not have the required documentation to let their loved ones know how they wish to be cared for in their final years. The Life and Death Comedy Show by Stevie Ray's Improv Company doesn't make fun of death, it makes fun of the fact that most of us avoid talking about one thing in life that is inevitable. This show will leave you in stitches and will take the fear out of having the talk with those you care about.


$10: students 13-18

$24: adults 18 & older
