The Undertaker’s Wife: A True Story of Love, Loss, and Laughter in Unexpected Places

Deona (“Dee”) Branch married into the funeral business when she wed Johnnie Oliver, a fourth-generation funeral director.  The fact that her life would be anything but dull became clear as early as their first date, when Johnnie had to scoot out “for just a minute”–and came back with a corpse!  Part memoir, part how-to book, The Undertaker’s Wife offers insights on grief, survival, and the ever-present faithfulness of God.  Sometimes poignant, sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, Dee’s story helps readers prepare for one of life’s only certainties–and do it with wisdom, grace, and a healthy dose of joy.
