Lacyn Barton has provided compassionate care to families in the Richmond area since 2015. As a teenager, Lacyn suffered a traumatic horse training accident in Colorado that she wasn’t expected to survive. After recovering and learning that her parents were put in the position of having to plan her funeral, she decided to dedicate her career to guiding families through one of the most challenging times in life.
She earned her degree in mortuary science from Arapahoe Community College, her bachelor’s degree in business from Fort Lewis College and her master's degree in business administration from Regis University. Lacyn is honored to be a part of our team and to serve families in Virginia.
When not working, Lacyn enjoys riding her Vespa and touring Virginia’s many historical sites with her family. She is an avid artist and her paintings can be found in homes and businesses all across the country. She is passionate about celebrating veterans and serving as a guardian on Honor Flight missions is a source of great joy for her.
Born and raised in Mexico, Ingrid Brown relocated to Cortez, Colo. before entering high school, where she had the opportunity to learn English. She soon took to her new home, enjoying activities like swimming, soccer and, one of her favorites, speech club. She graduated in 1996 and married soon after, following her husband to many Navy duty stations. She started expanding her knowledge at Tidewater Community College, close to Naval Base Norfolk.
In 2003, she graduated from John Tyler Community College's mortuary program and began a career in funeral service as a maintenance assistant. Her responsibilities quickly grew into positions as a death certificate runner, funeral assistant, and apprentice, until she became a licensed funeral director in 2005. Ingrid has been serving families at our location for over 16 years and continues to love her work, also serving as an assistant manager. When away from work, Ingrid enjoys helping her husband, a Shriner, raise funds for Shriner's Hospitals by collecting tickets at events or selling hotdogs and watermelons at festivals. She also enjoys swimming, reading, and chauffeuring her dog around to different parks. She attends Tikvat Israel Messianic Synagogue.
