ashified

adjective; derivation
Cremated; for one's body to be turned into ash after death I used the neologism ashified because I couldn't remember the word cremated. The thought process started with what the end result was (ash), and then adding a common English verb ending (-ify in words such as 'personify' and 'caninify'), and last making it an adjective by using it in past tense.
 
Do you want your body to be ashified after you pass away?
Etymology : ashified. Derived from Middle English 'asshe,' from Old English 'æsce,' from 'as-' in Indo-European Roots, 'ash' + '-ified' (past tense of -ify, verb ending).
