Brookfield, Wis. —Morman Funeral Home in Wakeman and the Morman-Hinman-Tanner Funeral Home in Berlin Heights are recipients of the 2007 National Funeral Directors Association’s (NFDA) Pursuit of Excellence Award, placing them among the top two percent of funeral homes nationwide. This elite group of professionals is dedicated to maintaining a positive image for funeral service by consistently providing outstanding service to families, ongoing education to staff and adherence to only the highest ethical and professional standards.

“The Pursuit of Excellence Program inspires funeral homes to continually evaluate and improve their level of service to families and communities,” said NFDA Chief Executive Officer Christine Pepper, CAE. “These firm’s exceed expectations in all facets of funeral service and are true leaders within their profession.” “ We are extremely proud to be receiving this award for the third straight year,” said owner James A. Morman. “Our entire staff works very hard everyday and no one is more deserving of this award than they are.”

Achieving a Pursuit of Excellence Award requires that a funeral home must meet strict quality service criteria that include: compliance with state and federal regulations; continuing education and staff development; family outreach and support; community service and education; professional association service and participation; and marketing, advertising and public relations.
