Tony Whitney
Funeral Director

Why are you passionate about the funeral service business?

I really enjoy the feeling that I am a part of something that makes a difference in people's lives. My true passion, and the reason that I entered funeral service, is simply to be there for the families we serve. I find myself going through many emotions along the funeral path. Our families experience so many feelings, and I find that the bond I develop with each individual is a miracle beyond words.

Bill Brough
Funeral Director’s Assistant

You have been in this industry for quite some time. What makes you know you are working in a place that mimics your own philosophy?

At Spilsbury, the thing that is most evident is that everybody here works together as a team to serve families with the highest quality service, and in a way that helps them know we are compassionate and really care about what emotions they are feeling at the worst possible time. I think everybody here has experienced the pain of losing a loved one and truly understands the importance of offering the right kind of support at the right time. It's a good feeling to know that we can all make a difference and contribute to a family's need for a support system just by being who we are in our own lives.

Aimee Sawyer
Administrative Coordinator

What has been most memorable in your time with Spilsbury?

All of the experiences and amazing people I have encountered since entering the funeral service business have been vastly rewarding for me. I am learning that every family we serve will be etched into my memory for years and years to come. While we are a huge part of their lives for a few painful days, the families we serve become embedded in our hearts through their stories and personal experiences.

Julie Brough
Family Programs Coordinator – Administrative Assistant

What is the single most rewarding thing to you about being part of the Spilsbury Family?

I am very honored to work for Spilsbury Mortuary, where everyone is so dedicated to each family and their needs. The most rewarding thing for me is the privilege of carrying out the wishes of the families, each with their own unique needs. At a time when parents or spouses are least able to think about putting a program together for their loved one, my goal is to assure them that a beautiful memorial will be created uniquely for them in celebration of their loved one’s life.

When I hear “oh, that’s so much more than we expected” or “mother (or dad) would have loved this” then I know that family is again grateful for all of the care and compassion we have provided for them. Having lost my own parents and a nephew, I know the emotional pain they are going through. The same amount of energy and love is put into creating the funeral programs as if they were for my own family.
