Funeral arrangements announced for Ringgold teenager killed in Alabama crash - WTVC

Monday, October 03, 2016

Katie's honor, at North Georgia Federal Credit Union in Ringgold.ORIGINAL STORY:A 2016 graduate of Heritage High School has been killed in a weekend crash near Piedmont, Alabama.The Anniston Star reports that 18-year-old Katie Beth Carter was pronounced dead around 6 p.m. Monday at Grady Memorial Hospital in Georgia, after her Honda Accord collided with an 18-wheeler.The accident happened Monday afternoon at the intersection of Highway 278 and Roy Webb Road.Carter was an active student at Jacksonville State University, and a ballerina on the JSU marching band.Band director Ken Bodiford announced Carter's death on his Facebook page. Bodiford wrote she had marched her first performance with the Southerners Thursday.“There are no words to describe the pain that we all feel or the sadness we share with her family,” Bodiford wrote. “Our Southerners family was blessed to have her in our midst and we will think of her as we enter the field for every performance.”Jay Bowden, assistant Calhoun County coroner, tells the Anniston Star the driver of the 18-wheeler was taken to RMC Jacksonville as a precautionary measure.Carter was also a member of the Scenic City Dance Center, which honored her memory on Facebook.Students at Heritage Middle School coped with the loss of their friend as best they could when they returned to class on Tuesday, making banners in her memory.Many students and teachers left with unanswered questions."Everyone's first reaction is why. Why did this have to happen to her? Especially

The funeral business? Eternally healthy -

Monday, September 12, 2016

Before he made the leap, 26-year-old Kyle Burgess had to get over a few things. He lives above the funeral home where he’s an apprentice in Anniston, about an hour from Birmingham. “So it used to be like touching a dead body was weird,” he said. “It was just cold and gave you the heebie-jeebies almost? But now it doesn’t anymore. Like that’s part of my job.”Eventually he wants to become a funeral director, like Doug Williams, who owns two funeral homes in Cullman, Alabama. A tour reveals caskets, an urn display, and then this:“It’s like a big bread oven. It’s a big, heavy, fire brick oven inside so it retains that heat pretty much,” Williams said.Doug Williams owns two funeral homes in Cullman, Alabama. He says it’s a challenge to recruit younger people to the business.  - Gigi Douban/MarketplaceThat big oven is where workers cremate bodies. Alabama, by the way, has one of the lowest cremation rates in the nation, compared with burials. Nevertheless, it’s 107 degrees in this room, still hot from a cremation the night before.Williams said it’s hard to find young people these days who want to work with the deceased, especially ones that aren’t lured by shows like “Six Feet Under” and “CSI.” Out of his own five children, Williams said, he’s lucky if one gets into the business.“The kids that I’ve interviewed in the last several months, they want an 8 to 5, 8 to 4, Monday through Friday,” he said. “The funeral biz is 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.”The Alabama Funeral Directors Association is recruiting at high schools. And state mortuary schools are looking for students. The association also just launched an Under 40 Funeral Directors Group, which other states have started in recent years. They network at conferences, do karaoke, go bowling.Ellen Wynn McBrayer, funeral director at Jones Wynn Funeral Homes and Crematory in Georgia, is in the under 40 group.McBrayer, a third-generation funeral home director, said that, not surprisingly, for younger people, death is even less on the radar.“For someone that didn’t grow up in funeral service to think about helping others in something we don’t even want to talk about planning for ourselves, it seems like it would be hard,” she said.As a child, she got used to celebrating her birthday on another day and postponing holiday festivities because of a funeral her parents had to run. Back then, she said she’d never get into the business. But eventually, she realized it was a chance to help families during tough times. Her brother, however, still won’t have anything to do wit

Dozens of firefighters and police escort Mount Olive Fire Chief back to Calhoun County - Anniston Star

Monday, January 23, 2017

Sanders’ husband, Randall Sanders, said by phone Monday. “She wanted to always reach out and help someone else.”Sanders began her career in public safety as a dispatcher for the Anniston Police Department, her husband said.“That’s where we met,” Sanders said, noting that they’d been married over 20 years. “There wasn’t one thing that drew me to her. It was everything about her.”Together, Randall Sanders said, the couple had two daughters, Shelby Sanders and Raegan Sanders. She also leaves behind a granddaughter, Baila Sanders.In 2009 Sanders finished EMT coursework at Gadsden State Community College and in 2013 graduated as an advanced EMT, Calhoun County Coroner Pat Brown said.Sometime before starting school, Sanders began working at the Fire Department, Brown said.“She got involved after she started a fire,” Randall Sanders said, chuckling. “She was trying to burn some leaves at the house, and the wind caught the fire and sent it running across the grass. The Fire Department had to come out and the rest is history so to speak.”Sanders was made chief in 2010 and she devoted her time to the department both as an EMT and as chief, her husband said.  Sanders was on official business Friday when the wreck occurred, which makes her the first firefighter line- of-duty death in the United States for the year, Chris Heisler, with the
