Finding Happiness with Melanie Neddow

shadow Mar 19

When Melanie first started mortuary school, she loved it right away. At her first embalming class, she thought to herself, “I can do this.” Most of what Melanie does is behind the scenes. This would include embalming someone or simply bathing them and grooming them. She is able to wash their hair, do their hair and nails, pluck their eyebrows, and add a little color on their cheeks. What Melanie finds happiness in is being able to allow the families to spend time with them loved ones. Melanie says, “The fact that I get to help a family spend that time with their loved one, giving them that opportunity to see their loved one more at peace that brings me great joy.”
