In the past I have said it is a good idea —to investigate urn options and have made the suggestion to try cookie jars and other ceramic jars as urns. In order to use an urn you need to choose cremation. This will always save you on Funeral cost! But a Pringle Can may be a bit over the top.
Dr. Baur an 89 year old man in Ohio used a pringle can as an urn. This story has been featured on Fox News on several news shows Exact information can be observed here:Cincinnati Enquirer obituary. One Fox news the comedy show Redeye on in the middle of the night, along with Mrs Hill whose show is on in the early afternoon.
There are alternatives to urns that will speak to a family’s desires amd choices. For Examples cookie jars, teapots, even sugar and flour containers can be used to as urns.
In the case of the pringles urn the individual had his ashes put in a regular urn and the pringles urn.
THe inventor of the Pringles Urn died on May 4 in College Hill, Ohio at the age of 89. The Pringle can was developed in the 1970’s
There had to be two urns because an urn generally has to hold 6 to eleven pounds of cremated remains
