Getting to Know Us!
Here at Abbey Caskets, we are blessed with the best staff!
If you have called in with questions or to place an order, you may have had the pleasure of talking with our team.
We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to each of our employees so you can connect a face with a name the next time you give us a call, and maybe learn a little about what makes us who we are along the way!
Introducing… Cori Wilson
What do you do at Abbey Caskets? Customer Service Representative, casket delivery, and I also get to help install the upholstery often.
How long have you worked for Abbey Caskets? 2 ½ years
What do you like most about your job? I really enjoy the small office we work in. We get to speak to so many families directly, so we get to really know our customers. It is nice to know we can help when they need us. And if you have ever gotten to visit us — the scenery here at the St. Meinrad Archabbey is breathtaking!
Abbey Caskets offers an aftercare program that uses our CareNotes. Do you have a favorite CareNote you share with families? Finding Ways to Celebrate Special Days After Loss – this CareNote really hits home for me after my mom’s passing. It is a reminder to me to celebrate her and her traditions.
What is your favorite work memory? We love holidays here and I get to put up our office Christmas tree every year!
What is something that recently made you smile? My daughter just graduated high school – it was amazing to see that milestone.
How do you like to spend your time outside of work? Hobbies? We love to travel, go to concerts, kayak, having family gatherings, and as a family we have been doing random charity work for years.
What three words would your friends use to describe you? Kind, thoughtful, spontaneous.
Do you have a go-to karaoke song? I’m definitely NOT a public singer, but I sure can belt out tunes in the car!! I tend to lean toward 80’s music.
It’s food day in the office – what’s your favorite dish to make? Anything sweet.
Do you have a favorite Scripture verse or quote? “If you’re always trying to be normal you will never know how amazing you can be.” ~ Maya Angelou
Name one thing that makes you unique. I’m super sentimental. I purchased my grandparents old home, and I have so many keepsakes. My grandmother always said I was an old soul, because I cherish memories more than anything else in this world.
