Service Manager & Funeral Director
Justine White joined the team at National Cremation Society in December 2017 as Service Manager & Funeral Director in Tukwila, WA.
Originally from Seattle, Justine left the Pacific Northwest to support her husband and his military career for over 11 years. She received her degree in Mortuary Science in 2013 from Arapahoe Community College in Littleton, CO and has over five years of experience working for a large traditional funeral home as a Funeral Director and Embalmer in the state of Georgia. Justine was awarded with the Service Excellence Award and J. D. Power’s Top Performer Award in her time there and is very excited to be back in her home state to share her accomplishments.
Justine’s passion and calling for helping families at this time of need stemmed from the loss of a close friend deployed overseas. She strives to provide peace of mind and serve each family with compassion and understanding.
In her spare time, Justine is busy spending time with her husband and three children. You most likely will find her on a soccer field somewhere cheering them on.
Cheryl Luby has worked with National Cremation since 2010, and currently works as the Office Manager at the National Cremation Society Seattle/Tukwila office. She was born and raised in Washington, and comes from a very big family – six sisters and six brothers. Her nationality is Native American, and she is a proud mother of four children - three boys and a girl. When not at the office, Cheryl spends time with her children enjoying the outdoors, swimming, and watching movies. She also enjoys dancing when she has free time. Cheryl says that the aspect of her job that she loves most is helping others.
