Meet The Woman Behind The Business: Karin Schuett

Karin Schuett, Owner and Licensed Funeral Director at Circle of Life Cremation and Burial Centre, is passionate about participating in the Dundas community and assisting charitable initiatives.

Karin Schuett is the Funeral Director at the helm of Circle of Life. She attended Humber College Funeral Services Program and graduated with Honours in 2006. Karin says she was inspired to become involved in the funeral business to support families during, quite possibly, the most difficult time in their lives. Karin has over 17 years experience as a licensed Funeral Director, and her caring nature, professionalism and sincerity, are just a few of her standout qualities remarked on by reviewers. When asked what the most rewarding part about her job was, Karin said, “Knowing that I have helped each family beyond what they expected.”

Karin’s sister Issi joined the Circle of Life team to work alongside Karin with sweet Miss Emma, the resident comfort dog. She recalls bringing Emma to work when she was a puppy, not having the heart to leave her at home all day. This evolved into Emma becoming the most beloved four-legged helper. One reviewer commented, “From the moment we first spoke with Karin on the phone, to being greeted by the gentle Miss Emma at the front door, we took comfort in knowing that Circle of Life was the right fit for our family.”
