Tammeria Ramsey recently received her funeral director’s license. Ramsey works at Summers, Kirby and Sanders Funeral Home and is looking forward to adding yet another feather to her cap of helping the community she lives in.
May of 2011, Ramsey began working for Summers, Kirby and Sanders Funeral Home as the office manager. Not long into this position she also began helping Brent Summers in other areas of the funeral business. Summers suggested that she think about serving her apprenticeship with Summers, Kirby and Sanders Funeral Home and become a licensed funeral director.
In April of 2012, Summers and Ramsey went before the Kentucky Board of Embalmers and Funeral Directors to be accepted into the apprenticeship program. Ramsey had to serve a three year apprentice with Summers as her supervisor and his training her to become a funeral director.
Ramsey did not have to attend school, as all of the training was hands on. After completing three years of training, keeping a daily work log and semi-annul reports to the Board, then came the final exam, given by the Kentucky Board of Embalmers and Funeral Directors. The exam consists of general knowledge of funeral directing and Kentucky Laws. Ramsey took the exam in June and passed. Ramsey is pleased to say that she is now a licensed funeral director for the state of Kentucky and looks forward to serving Logan County families.
Ramsey is from Adairville. She is the daughter of the late Sidney Tanner and Peggy Sircy Tanner. She is married to Keith Ramsey and they enjoy spending time with their daughter and son in law, Keshia and Trent and their five grandchildren. Ramsey is a lifelong member of Whippoorwill Baptist Church, where she serves as Sunday school teacher and church treasurer. After graduating from Logan County High School and the Russellville Vocational School, she worked as an office manager and in the banking industry. In 2011 she was lead to Summers, Kirby and Sanders.
“Our team is striving to serve each of our families to the best of our ability in everything we do,” said Ramsey.
