Long before the social media explosion, Alexandra and Doris were the popular faces of women in funeral service. And that popularity has not waned. The two women are as sought after for their experience and expertise, as well as their amazing adventures. In fact, they are two of the most influential women in funeral service today.
In their latest interview Alexandra Mosca and Doris Amen: They Told Me It Was Impossible And I Did It Anyway in Authority Magazine, the Morte Girls discuss how early on they were discouraged from becoming funeral directors. “You will never make it in the funeral industry!” they were told. Given their success, and national recognition, they certainly proved the naysayers wrong.
Sir William Ewart Gladstone (1809-1898)
A time-honored maxim by British Prime Minister William E. Gladstone guides all good funeral directors: “Show me the manner in which a nation cares for its dead and I will measure with mathematical exactness the tender mercies of its people, their respect for the laws of the land, and their loyalty to high ideals.” We couldn’t agree more.
In their interview: The Morte Girls: Breaking Down Barriers and Pushing Back! in the May/June issue of ‘Funeral Business Advisor Magazine’ the Morte Girls discuss how early on they overcame the challenges they faced as women in funeral service, how they became media personalities, and their unswerving commitment to uphold cherished funeral traditions
