Being the daughter of Chris and Jackie Girdner, Terah was raised in the funeral business. She attended local schools, graduated, and went off to college. She returned home and worked in several industries before deciding to come to work for her parents at both the pet crematory and currently as the main Sandblasting Technician for the headstone company. Being creative… she enjoys the artistic and hands on aspect of creating the stones for the company. In her off hours she loves the outdoors, reading and movies. The things that are important to Terah are her pets and spending time with friends and family.
