Several years ago, Funeral Directors Life established a Memorial Scholarship Fund to honor the memories of funeral service professionals who were so instrumental in establishing and supporting our company, while making tremendous contributions to our industry. All of these gentlemen had the vision during the early days of Funeral Directors Life to make significant professional and personal sacrifices toward achieving the ultimate mission of our company, To Be the Best, Most-Respected Provider of Service to the Funeral Industry.
For the past several years, Funeral Directors Life has awarded Memorial Scholarships to assist mortuary students with the expenses of attending school.
