Home funeral director Glenda Villegas guides families in creating meaning with home funerals.  After learning valuable lessons about what it’s like to plan a funeral for the unexpected loss of a loved one, Glenda started a career working in the funeral industry.  She first worked in pre-need cemetery sales, then moved on to family services where she learned how to serve families at death. During these years, Glenda learned the funeral industry inside and out.  She realized her path led to providing home funerals for families after a death. Her desire to serve families through education about laws related to death care, combined with the option of a home funeral experience, led her to become a licensed funeral director.  Today Glenda teaches families how to care for their dead, helping to facilitate the grief process by creating meaning with home funerals.
