Cherie Neal

Cherie Neal

Office Manager

Cherie began her career in the funeral industry just over 13 years ago in Daytona Beach, Florida.  There, she met her husband Mark and they have enjoyed working side by side ever since.

A Florida native, experiencing the four seasons has been wonderful.  Fall has proven to be her favorite time of year with the Michigan winters being a bit of a challenge.  However, Cherie does find the first snowfall of the season to be simply beautiful.

Cherie is truly honored to serve our families in their time of need and she continually looks for unique and personalized ways to honor your loved one.
