NON-LICENSED STAFF Although not licensed funeral directors, these members of our staff are vitally important toward the operation of our firm. These individuals make it possible for us to professionally coordinate funerals with the quality of service our community has come to expect from us.
Michele, a lifelong Stamford resident, became a member of the Cognetta staff in September of 2006. In 1994, she and her daughter, Victoria, suffered the sudden loss of their husband/father and called on Cognetta Funeral Home to handle the arrangements. It was that event that sparked her interest in the death care industry. Among her many responsibilities, she drives the hearse, is a licensed hairdresser, and is a familiar face at the door during wakes and on funerals. She was remarried in 2000 to Mark and then had a son, Michael.
