The President In A Snapshot

I am Patricia Alexander and I have provided excellent professional service in the funeral industry for over 13 years. The licenses I hold enable me to serve families in Illinois and Indiana. I have a heart for hurting and grieving families. This causes me to empathize with each family and provide the utmost comfort and compassion in their time of need.

My passion is to thoroughly facilitate the type of service you desire. We understand that this is one of the most difficult and challenging times in life. Please take comfort in knowing we are here to help.

Service For You

With a heart for service and keeping you, our extended family, in the forefront of our mind, please allow us to assist you through one of the most difficult and life-altering times of your life. We are here to help.  

What do we mean by, “Modern Day Flair With a Down Home Feel?” Unlike the early days of Egyptian embalming, where no protective gear was worn and spectator crowds were also allowed to look on as the process took place. We dress appropriately as the condition of the deceased demands. The embalming process is a private experience to be held by the embalmer and the decedent. We follow all recommendations of the CDC guidelines. 

The “Down Home Feel” refers to the friendliness of the south where everyone is considered your neighbor. That’s the feeling we here at Griffin Wright are embracing while revealing this sentiment to our families!

Generate Excitement

We have a great and exciting externship opportunity for junior year student(s) in a mortuary science program. You’ll have the opportunity to experience what we mean by our motto, “Modern Day Flair With A Down Home Feel.”

The owner will allow serious-minded juniors to get a brief exciting externship providing a visual aspect of the embalming process and the proper way to dress and casket the deceased. This allowance creates an atmosphere of full-circle learning by combining book knowledge with a visual connection. This is something that has not been implemented in the past.

Griffin Wright Funeral Home is working diligently to benefit the students in a way that creates a heightened and enhanced experience in the classroom. Perhaps, if time allows, a few questions can be answered.
