Marlene "Marty" Clifford Shoemaker
(I know - too many names! But that's the way it is!)
I was born and raised in the funeral business, truth be told that is called a "Funeral Brat". When I was 6 years old, my dad, Bill Clifford bought our funeral home. We lived upstairs for a few years. When my friends would come over we would actually play in the funeral home and they all thought that was pretty fun and a little bit scary, but to this day they still remember it. During all of my school years, I was teased about the funeral business.
After marrying Ken Shoemaker, who joined my father in our funeral business, and our 2 kids, Tracy and Steve were in school, I was talked into getting my funeral director's license by my dad. I am so glad I did!
Serving and helping families is what I like most about being in our business.
