Cemetery At Sunset Staff

Sunset Garden’s has been Celebrating Lives in the Tri-Cities and the surrounding region since 1958.
Einan’s at Sunset, Cemetery at Sunset and Events at Sunset work together to help you create a celebration and memory that befits you and your family. While staying true to our roots and heritage we believe that traditional funeral homes are quickly becoming a thing of the past. As we continue to provide traditional service we understand the demand for a new focus on the journey of life- celebrating the life that has been lived, not the death.

 “We all have possibilities we don’t know about. We can do things we don’t even dream we can do.” – Dale Carnegie

Sherry Bravenec
Sherry Bravenec

Advance Planning Specialist 

Sherry has worked in customer service industry since the age of 16, where she discovered her desire to help people, therefore leading her to working with local non-profit and community groups.

“My history is full of many adventures and customer service industries, which all have created the person I am today.”

After the loss of her mom, she saw firsthand how important the pre-planning process can be, not only to ease the burden during a difficult time, but to help the family begin the grieving process without having to worry about the financial burden. This motivated Sherry to pursue her career as an Advance Planning Specialist with Sunset Gardens. Making final arrangements is not something a family has to deal with on a regular basis, therefore Sherry is honored to provide guidance, support, and direction to families.

She joined Sunset Gardens because of the staff’s immense dedication to the families they serve. Sherry says, “That is one of the many reasons why I love my job. I get to help families create the celebration of their lives in advance which will enable the family to come together and love each other during one of the toughest times in life without having to bear the financial burden.”

Read Michael's Full Bio
Mike has been with his best friend, his wife Caryl for 26 years. They have four grown children and seven grandchildren.  One granddaughter and six grandsons. Eight years old to nineteen years old. They now have three girls at home Rosie eleven, Mia five, and Tris year and a half old. They are their dogs. Caryl and Mike enjoy church, reading, boating, fly fishing, dog training, golf, traveling to Hawaii, family and friends. They love to take long walks and enjoy all the wonders of the Tri-Cities and surrounding areas. Mike feels that “working for Einan’s is a privilege”. He says, “to work with the professional staff and to be around an environment of the beautiful grounds and the newly remodeled funeral home. I feel Einan’s is ahead of their time, with the New Event Center on their grounds that can provide for the most outstanding, and unforgettable Funeral or Memorial service.” Mike describes his thoughts on what makes working at Einan’s so different. “They allow me to work with each family with what their needs are, not ours. I can work as a Funeral Director and not as a cookie cutter funeral director like other funeral homes have you do. This is about you and your family and not about us. This allows me to help each family with what matters most to them.” Mike also notes the quality of care that Einan’s provides families. “Einan’s prides themselves in servicing each family with the utmost respect and dignity. This is also how I feel. We take such special care and gentleness with your love one that you should have no worries.” Mike also describes the compassionate care given when making funeral arrangements at Einan’s. “We also take that special effort and care in supporting you and guiding you through this process of funeral or cremation arrangements.” I understand that you may have not been through this process before and I respect that and so does Einan’s. We are here to serve you!”
