In an era when people believed that a womans place was in the home, she decided to go to embalming school and carry on the work her husband had begun. Doris Steffy lovingly chronicles her mothers journey from homemaker to funeral director in this moving memoir. It is my wish that this book will give renewed hope to those who have lost a loved one, a better understanding to those who have not suffered such a loss, and a new dimension of courage to those who have allowed fear to keep them from realizing their greatest potential, writes Doris. But most of all, by setting my mothers tenets down on paper, I hope they will come to share her great faith in the resiliency of the human spirit.
