Troy Warren - Funeral Director/ Embalmer
Santa Rosa Mortuary family (Fred Young Funeral Home, Santa Rosa Mortuary, Eggen & Lance Chapel) Funeral Director Troy Warren has many interests. They include anatomy/physiology which combines well with his desire to serve others.Shortly after completing his studies at San Francisco College of Mortuary Science he found himself at home with the Santa Rosa Mortuary family.It’s true that some funeral homes are run by large companies or corporations that really don’t have families’ interest at heart and care more about company profits. We are a small company that focuses on meeting the needs of each family that comes to us, and I think we do it even better than most “family owned” businesses. His off work pleasures include hiking, playing the guitar, and puttering around the house.
Nou Andee - Arrangement Counselor
One of the most fascinating aspects of this service industry for Nou Andee is that requests vary depending upon beliefs and custom. She is motivated to help families at their time of need. Honoring the life of a loved one is her priority. Outside of work, she enjoys being with close family and friends. She also finds time to be outdoors and to try new things.“Life is always a mystery and I am surprised by every single day I come across.”
