“Funeral Gal” Launches Business Blog

An article excerpt from Funeral Service Insider ( 

Danielle Thacker is taking her knowledge and expertise to the world of blogging with “The Funeral Gal.” The small business blog with a funeral focus aims to create a new perspective on how funeral professionals will continue to provide families value despite changing consumer demands and business challenges.

Thacker is a third-generation member of the Thacker family, which has served the funeral industry for more than seven decades. In 2007, she graduated from Villanova University as a marketing, management information systems double major. Her education, eight years of experience in working for her family business, and exposure to hundreds of funeral homes on an annual basis have led to the creation of the blog.
“Approaching the industry from a younger, female, and true small-business perspective, my goal is to create a new voice within the funeral industry,” she said. “Ideally, this will provide funeral professionals progressive ideas to reach their communities and manage their businesses.”

The Funeral Gal will provide readers with business advice from not only Thacker but also guest bloggers from both within and outside the industry. Subscribe at and “like” her on Facebook at You can also follow her on Twitter and Instagram @thefuneralgal.
