Erin Matous is a native of Central Illinois who knew at age 16 that she wanted to be a funeral director. In fact, it was the only career she ever saw herself in. She began working at a local funeral home while in high school. Then, as now, she wants to give people the best start to the grieving process as possible. She graduated from Carl Sandburg College in Galesburg, Illinois, in May 2019. She and her husband, Jack Matous, were married early in 2020 and together with her children, Finnegan and Carrigan, they make their home here in Bryan-College Station and she loves the area. Spare time finds her spending time with her family and friends as well as the children’s friends. On vacations she enjoys traveling, shopping, reading, watching movies, and most of all going to the beach. She also notes she is always happy to discover a nearby Starbucks for her favorite iced coffees.
