Licensed funeral director hired in May
Roberts Family Funeral Home in Forest Lake has made a staff addition.
Rebecca Nelson, a licensed funeral director, joined the staff at Roberts Family Funeral Home this spring.
Nelson, born and raised in Cambridge, became interested in funeral service following the tragic death of her sister-in-law. She earned her mortuary science degree from the University of Minnesota in 1998.
For Nelson, being a funeral director has allowed her to blend her interests in business, science and ministry into one occupation.
Before joining the staff at Roberts Family Funeral Home in May, Nelson worked part-time at Carlson-Lillemoen Funeral Home in Cambridge.
“I am excited that Rebecca has joined our team,” said Tim Tarmann, funeral director.
“Her desire to help families during difficult times is so evident the first time you meet her. Her presence has already enhanced the service at our funeral home.”
Nelson will be serving families with funeral arrangements, advanced funeral planning and marker/monument sales.
