Over a span of four years in my late 20s, both of my parents passed away suddenly. At the time of my father’s death, I lived two hours away from the family home and was a new mom to an infant. While the probate process of settling my parents’ estate was fairly simple (thanks to a terrific attorney and family friend), serving as executor consumed incredible time and effort. Looking back, I wish I could have outsourced some of the responsibility to others. Additionally, this experience deepened my appreciation of how critical it is to have one’s own paperwork and records in order (my parents did not) and how time consuming and difficult it can be when emptying the family home and its possessions. I founded Executrixie to help others through the navigation of end of life matters.
