Jennifer Wheeler

Jennifer Wheeler

Manager and Funeral Director

With 10 years of experience in the death care industry, Jennifer is able to treat each situation with dignity and respect. Showing compassion and courtesy while also being aware of cost are just some of her strong points. She has great attention to detail and takes pride in all things that she does.

Jennifer is from Martin County and attended Shoals High School before graduating from Vincennes University in 2005. While living in Indianapolis, she held different positions in the funeral industry, was an active participant in hospice programs, including Heartland Hospice, and was a member of St. Jude Catholic Church.

Since she has moved back to this area, she has become active with her daughter at Our Lady of Hope Catholic Church. Jennifer looks forward to getting settled here so she can be more involved in the community.

She enjoys spending her free time with her daughter and likes many outdoor activities, such as camping, training horses, and pleasure trail riding.

"Being a funeral director to me is the last act of respect you can allow for a loved one, and I will honor your family member as if they were my own."
