Living Legends of Funeral Service

Funeral Service is a privileged calling to serve the grieving and the bereaved. For Funeral Directors, the meaning of death is service. It is our responsibility to take the mystery out of it and help those who are overwhelmed with emotions.
Those in the new generation of Living Legends have lifted the spirits of millions of families through their education, training, service, professionalism and compassion. Their leadership and success have broken down barriers and made them trailblazers, mentors and role models to many funeral colleagues. 
As we share family heritage and achievements, we recognize that every journey is different. Most importantly, their journeys are not finished yet! Please use them as mentors, ask questions, visit with them, and share their stories with others. 
Congratulations to the 2021 100BWFS Living Legends of Funeral Service. The 100 Black Women of Funeral Service want to make their profession the go-to career for those who know the importance of compassion, commitment and excellence in service. Email us at 100BWFS@gmail.com.
