I own and operate the Brundage Funeral Home in Dillon, Montana, and I am also the County Coroner.  Dillon is a rural community in the southwestern corner of the state where there is hunting, fishing and beautiful scenery, it is also boasts the campus of the University of Montana Western. My husband and I purchased the funeral home in 2002, he, having been his entire adult life, in funeral service and me a new graduate in 1998. My husband died a little over a year ago, and I realized at some point I will need to have someone that can take over the business.

I am looking for someone willing to work with me and develop the skills that I have developed over the years. The interested person will go to the family home, hospital, nursing home, etc. to meet with family and have initial contact, prepare the body for the services, prepare for all aspects of the services, conduct services, etc. I am an advocate of membership in our association as well as the National Funeral Directors Association. I plan to stay in funeral service and hold my license even after retiring so that I can be of assistance to whoever eventually takes over the mortuary.
