I have always found the funeral rite a beautiful and symbolic time.

Darlene Glidden

Darlene Glidden, enrolled at Mount Ida College in Newton, MA, will graduate in May 2018. Currently employed at Bosk Funeral Home in MA, Glidden hopes to continue her employment there once licensed and degreed. Glidden comes to the funeral profession with 5 years of experience as a firefighter and an emergency medical technician.

Glidden explains why she has chosen her new path.

“I have always found the funeral rite a beautiful and symbolic time,” said Glidden. “To me, there is so much more to it than simply saying farewell to a loved one.”
