Michelle Dixon

Family Service Counselor

Michelle has lived locally for over 4 decades. She has been married to her loving husband Howard for over 20 years and has 3 amazing children; Kelseigh(Jesse), Shon and Jacen and her grandson Damian. After her daughter Abigail and her son Connery passed away she began her career in the funeral industry. When her brother passed away suddenly without a pre-need she realized how difficult it was for his family and encouraged her parents to pre-arrange their own funerals. With the devastating loss of her father to colon cancer she understood how easy it was to arrange his services since he had planned his cremation in advance. She is passionate about helping families plan their services in advance and help them celebrate the lives of their loved ones.
