Your Questions


I'm interested into taking embalming classes and becoming an embalmer, but I'm deaf. Would it make any difference? And where is a good college program for embalming i could go to in Indiana or anywhere in USA. Let me know, thanks.
Sorry for the delay. I've been thinking about this for several days. My father was completely deaf in his right ear and partially in the left due to an injury in WW2. That impairment made some tasks more difficult in working with families. However, he was an excellent embalmer. As you know the Americans with Disabilities Act has eliminated many barriers. I see no reason why you should not be able to become an embalmer/funeral director. Since you did not relate the extent of your hearing impairment or your ability to read lips I can't assess how you would deal with lectures, but, there's always a way. Our site has a link to AbbottandHast.com which has a list of mortuary colleges around the country. As a member of the Board of Trustees of San Francisco College of Mortuary Science, I am partial to that institution. However, I consider John Braboy, president of Mid=America College of Mortuary Science in Indiana, a friend and believe they offer an outstanding program. You might want to start there. Hope I've answered your questions and wish you luck. Please don't hesitate to contact me again if I can offer further help.
