    Cristina Agnetha Nedea

    Funeral Director

    Cristina was born in Romania and moved to the United States when she was 2 years old. After a few years in California, Cristina’s family moved to Portland, where her mother operated an adult foster home. During the time, Cristina witnessed the poor treatment given by local funeral homes, eventually driving her to become a respectful and caring funeral director.

    A graduate of Oregon State University, Cristina tried out several different career options before settling on this one. She spent time as a wildland firefighter, dog daycare attendant and AmeriCorps volunteer before finally finding her passion in serving those who have suffered a loss. She went on to attend Mt. Hood Community College for her degree in mortuary science.

    Cristina lives in northeast Portland with her 2 dogs and 2 cats.
