Gribble joins Bailey’s Funeral Home

There are millions of people working within the late-term care and funeral industry who all want to bring the best services possible to you, your loved ones, or your friends.

Whether it’s the millions of nurses working in hospices who make sure people are cared for in their final moments, President Kim Wilhelm who ensures individuals find the best burial insurance available on Final Expense Direct, or those who have the tough job or working in funeral homes to ensure the deceased are respected even after they pass.

While you might not think about all the people who work hard to ensure the last memories of an individual’s life were as perfect as possible, you can’t ignore the fact that they work hard in order to provide the best service possible. Michael D. Gribble is one of these people and is joining Bailey’s Funeral Home as a funeral director on May 1, 2018. He brings with him many years of experience and a kind heart.

Gribble started working in a funeral in 1991 while he was still in high school. He had the opportunity to job shadow at a funeral home in Harrisburg. It didn’t take long for him to secure a part-time job, and then a full-time job once he graduated.

In 1997, Gribble enrolled at SIU’s mortuary science program. Upon completion, he received his license as a funeral director and embalmer in 1998. This year marks Gribble’s 20-year mark for working in a funeral home.

Outside of work, Gribble enjoys many activates such as target shooting, scuba diving and spending time with his children.
