    Ruth C Urlacher

    Funeral Director

    Ruth Urlacher first joined our funeral home as an apprentice funeral director and embalmer, gaining her license in 2018. Prior to funeral service, she received a master’s degree in archaeology from the University of Alberta. During her studies, Ruth taught skeletal anatomy labs for undergraduate anthropology students and worked on archaeological excavations in northern Japan. These experiences led her to pursue a career in funeral service, a path that seemed to be a natural combination of her academic interests and desire to help others.

    Ruth finds great fulfillment in guiding families during a difficult time and enjoys creating unique, personalized services for their loved ones. Outside of work, she is an avid fiction reader and writer, hikes, and practices and competes in Shitō-ryū karate.
