“Getting Organized for the Inevitable” is topic of talk at Menlo Park Library on July 16
On July 16 at 1:00 pm, the Menlo Park Library will present “You Can’t Take it with You: Getting Organized for the Inevitable,” a talk by estate organization expert Jeanne Smith.
Smith’s presentation will focus on the importance of getting one’s practical affairs in order prior to an incapacity or death. She will delve into the topics of having difficult conversations with family members, and recording and gathering the personal, financial and legal information of an estate.
Jeanne Smith is a professional organizer specializing in end-of-life issues. She created the field of estate organization when she established her firm Exit Stage Right, LLC in 1992. For the past 24 years she has worked with Trustees/Executors to assist them with their duties – from paperwork to clearing out homes, and everything in between.
“The most successful families are those who have faced the reality of mortality, created an estate plan and then have had ‘The Family Conversations’ prior to a death,” she said.
No preregistration is necessary to attend this free event, which is made possible thanks to the generosity of Jeanne Smith. Beverages will be provided, courtesy of the Friends of the Menlo Park Library. The event will take place at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 16th at the Menlo Park City Council Chambers, located at 701 Laurel Street.
