New position expands care for grieving families
A longtime Oxford resident has taken on a new role of caring for local families in the weeks and months after the loss of a loved one.
Kathy Brummett has joined Coleman Funeral Home of Oxford as Family Care Coordinator. Co-owner Glenn Coleman said the role is a natural fit, since people in the community already know Brummett for her care and compassion.
“People know Kathy as someone who cares deeply for others, as well as for her attention to detail,” said Coleman. “She will serve our families well.”
Brummett said her position builds on Coleman Funeral Home’s already established relationships with families.
“When it matters, you should know we will be there following up, even months after the death of a loved one.”
“It’s about care and building relationships,” Brummett said. “When it matters, you should know we will be there following up, even months after the death of a loved one.”
Brummett, who has experienced the passing of a close family member, said she understands how important care for families is after the death of a loved one.
“When someone close to me passed, it was so important to have people around that continued to support me, even months after the funeral,” she said.
Brummett has lived in Oxford, Mississippi for over 40 years. She previously served as an Independent National Sales Director for Mary Kay Cosmetics, retiring January 2017. She is married to Pete, and has three daughters, Christy, Casey, Kimberly and eight grandchildren.
She is an active member of the Oxford Church of Christ, where she works in the college ministry. Brummett is also an active participant in the fight against human trafficking. For her efforts, Brummett was named 2017 Woman of Distinction by the Girl Scouts.
In her new role with Coleman Funeral Home, Brummett said she is most looking forward to supporting families.
“The family care component is what most appealed to me about this position,” said Brummmett. “Serving and helping people has always been important to me.”
