more than sixty years, Marguerite was a dedicated provider
of funeral service to the families being cared for by the
family's funeral home.
She was responsible for managing the office and for answering
the phones. She never asked for time off. So, she did it every
day, both day and night and never complained.
She was a friendly and familiar voice to those calling, and
most importantly, she was a friend and mentor.
In honor of Marguerite's dedication and to the expectation
of so many of our callers, we still take pride in answering
the phones ourselves. At all times, you will speak to a member
of the DeFriest-Grattan Family who will be as patient, kind,
compassionate and helpful as she was.
