In Memory of ... Former Staff Members
Gone but not forgotten

When you work on a daily basis with staff members that care about the people they serve, it is very hard to say "see you soon" when they leave this world. The following staff members are cherished loved ones of our own that worked many visitations, services and office hours to help the families we serve through the most difficult chapters of their lives. They were great assests to Masters Funeral Home and will be greatly missed.
