The funeral business? Eternally healthy -

Monday, September 12, 2016

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 with the family business.

Monday, November 28, 2016

His wife, Kim Chumley, perished in the fire at a home they shared with Kim’s daughter, Kayla Carden, who was at work at the time.Cullman County Coroner Jeremy Kilpatrick said he was awaiting DNA testing to confirm the victim’s identity which could take months. The Alabama State Fire Marshal's Office is leading the investigation and has declined to offer details about how the fire may have started.With Carden and Keith Chumley losing everything in the fire — including their mother and wife respectively — family and friends have established two online fundraisers to help them put their lives back together.A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise money for Kim Chumley’s funeral expenses (, with a $5,000 goal. As of Tuesday afternoon, $480 had been raised.A second one was set up for Kayla Carden (, with $1,095 raised of the $1,500 goal.Keith Chumley has been making progress in the days since the fire, Hamm said.“He’s been sedated all this time, and he’s had two skin grafts,” she said while on her way to Birmingham Tuesday. “His vitals look good, but anything can happen. The damage to his lungs is the most critical part the doctors are worried about.”Hamm said her father suffered burns all over his body, with the worst on his upper thighs and legs. He and Kim Chumley had been together for 10 years and were planning to move to Dodge City, with Carden, to be closer to his job.“The Red Cross is donating $500 toward Kim’s funeral expenses,” she said. “Kayla lost everything. It’s bad enough to lose your home and all your belongings in a fire, but to lose your mother, it’s just unimaginable.”
