French Funeral Home, staffers honored by IFDA

Friday, June 25, 2010

French Funeral Home, 421 E. National Ave., Brazil, recently received the Award of Excellence from the Indiana Funeral Directors Association at its 130th annual convention.

The award recognizes funeral homes that have adopted, maintained and documented the highest professional standards in the areas of legal compliance, community involvement, professional development and family science.

Founded in 1880, the Indiana Funeral Directors Association is the professional organization serving Indiana's funeral service professional with member services, advocacy and education.

One of the oldest funeral service associations in the nation, IFDA represents 1,600 licensed funeral directors in Indiana and houses its convention and exposition every year in downtown Indianapolis.

In addition to the award for the funeral home, the Indianapolis Funeral Education Foundation recently recognized Norm Knuth and Robert Miller as Isaac Ball Fellows.

Both serve with French, Lawson-Miller Chapel and Crematory, both in Brazil, and Schoppenhorst Funeral Home in Clay City.

According to the IFDA, the designation recognizes those who have made a significant financial contribution toward the ongoing mission of the foundation.

The education foundation funds funeral service scholarships, supports continuing education for funeral directors, operates the funeral resource center and donates to certain causes.
