Holly is a Snohomish County based Funeral Director. She started considering mortuary at a family member’s funeral in Seattle. During that time she had been working at a hospital ER and started researching the industry.
“I really like helping people. I don’t mind at all if people need to cry or if they are scared. Working at a local family owned funeral home gives me a wonderful opportunity to offer skills that may help families through some of the hardest times. In my free time I enjoy hiking, floral arranging and visual arts such as India ink painting. ”
In your service, Holly Mattie
