Vera was raised in Caliente, Nevada where she first met the Wiscombe family. During her teenage years she would often babysit their children. After serving a mission for the L.D.S. Church in Tennessee she entered mortuary school in San Francisco, California. After graduating, Vera went to work for Hites Funeral Home in Henderson, Nevada and later relocated to Sierra Vista, Arizona where she had been employed with Hatfield Funeral Home since 2001 having been involved in every aspect of funeral service in addition to being their crematory operations specialist. While at Hatfield's, Vera became very proficient at serving military veteran families.
In June 2006, the Wiscombe family was thrilled when Vera enthusiastically accepted a position to join them in Davis. It has been exciting for the Wiscombes to watch Vera embrace the funeral profession where she is highly committed to the families she serves. The quality of our service is strengthened by her compassion and dedication.
In December 2010, Vera purchased the funeral home from the Wiscombes. She is excited for this new opportunity and continues with the same dedication to those we serve.
Spike is our therapy dog. He loves people and strives to bring comfort to grieving families. We understand that some may have allergies and others may be uncomfortable with dogs so Spike does not join in the arrangements until he is invited.
