The 2nd June 2020 marks the 5th anniversary of independent family owned business Odette Funeral Director. Odette currently Calne’s longest serving funeral director with over 20 years’ experience in the funeral business has quite a few achievements under her belt.
To date they have won Funeral Planner of The Year 2018 and 2019 with Golden Charter Funeral Plans and it was just over two years ago that Odette invested in her own hearse and limousine. She is also proud that they are the only funeral directors in the local area with a completely re-furbished Victorian Funeral Bier circa. 1896.
Whilst Odette Funeral Director has been a successful business from the off; Odette and her two children, Sara and Tom who work together in the family firm are always wanting to give back to their community, often donating to the local charities in the town, sponsoring activities and support groups.
Sara has worked in the family business for almost 4 years and is very much involved in all aspects of running the office and seeing to the family’s needs. She manages her time between looking after her two children aged 10 and 2 years and believes she is being the best role model for her daughters, showing them that she can work in the business alongside being a loving mother.
