“I love when I can put together something special for a family. Personalizing a funeral experience can make all the difference in the grieving process. What I like best about working with families is the satisfaction of knowing we made the toughest time in someone’s life a little bit easier.”
Molly Shore, a full-time apprentice at Keohane, was attracted to the wide range of skills the job required. A funeral director apprentice needs to be artistic, empathetic, strong, and quick on her feet. Molly’s responsibilities include much of the behind the scenes work to support the funeral directors, which might include filing paperwork, assisting with office work, being present during arrangements, setting up for visitations and helping at funerals.
After graduating from Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High School, Molly attended UMASS Dartmouth for engineering. She then received a certificate in grief counseling from Bristol Community College, and she is now enrolled at FINE Mortuary College in Norwood.
Molly enjoys artistic hobbies and crafting. She makes costumes, both by sewing and material fabricating, and custom paints resin dolls. She also brews beer at home with friends. Molly likes to relax on the weekend with a good science fiction book or some video games.
