Brendolyn Jasper
Brendolyn JasperAssistant to the Director
Brendolyn Jasper joined Husband Family Funeral Home in July 2016. She serves as a Funeral Director Assistant and Comfort Giver. Her caring and compassionate ways are very much appreciated by all the families she serves.

Brendolyn worked for the Social Security Administration for 38 years, retiring in January 2009. She and her husband, Robert, have lived in Southfield, Michigan for over 28 years and are the proud parents of three adult children. Brendolyn is a faithful member of Empowerment Church in Southfield, lending a helpful hand in various capacities.

According to Brendolyn, when she tells someone that she works at a funeral home, the first question they ask is, “Why?” Her answer is, “Why not?” After all, it’s in her blood. Her father was a Licensed Mortician and Funeral Home Owner in West Virginia for over 50 years. So, it’s only natural for Brendolyn to serve in the capacity that she does at Husband Family Funeral Home.
