Yvonne M. Nantz
Funeral Director

Yvonne joined the staff of Owen Funeral Home in October, 2002 as a licensed funeral director. A native of Louisville, she has worked in funeral service since 1987. Yvonne completed her education for her license in July 1992 and in July 2000 obtained her certification as a Grief Management Specialist from the American Grief Academy.

She is a former volunteer for Hospice of Louisville and was a Junior Achievement teacher at St. Martha Catholic School for 12 years. She also spent 10 years teaching a class on the value of funeral service and the need for grief support to Senior classes at several Catholic high schools in the area. Yvonne feels that this is a perfect age to inform young adults about the importance of celebrating life through the funeral service and also of supporting those who are grieving from a loss.

Yvonne feels that it is an honor to be a funeral director and have the opportunity to help families during a most difficult time. She feels especially fortunate to be working with the staff at Owen as a family owned and operated funeral home.

In her spare time, she enjoys reading, traveling, dancing and especially spending time with her husband, children and grandchildren.  Yvonne married her husband Jim in December, 2004.  The two of them together have six wonderful children and their spouses, David and wife Chrissy, Brian and wife Kristen, Amy, Jill, Kelly and husband Roger, and Shawna and husband Michael.   Yvonne and Jim have been blessed with seven amazing grandchildren, Emma Kay, Eleanor Lillian "Nora", Madison Noel, John David, and Tyson Louis "Ty", Margaret Amelia "Maggie" and Lucas James which she and Jim are extremely proud of.
