Managing Funeral Director



Robert 'Rob' Rogers

Robert "Rob" Rogers

Funeral Director/Embalmer

Robert descends from a long line of funeral directors, but did not originally intend to go into the funeral industry. That all changed when he began working for his uncle’s funeral home during summer break in college. Helping and comforting families during their greatest time of need proved to be second nature. From then on, he knew he wanted to be a funeral director. Rob graduated from Gupton-Jones College of Funeral Service in Atlanta in 2005. For 15 years, he worked as a funeral director in Georgia before coming up to Biddeford to join our team. Rob loves the outdoors and takes full advantage of the many open-air activities Maine has to offer including skiing, trail running, and hiking.


Emily Shoop

Emily Shoop

Funeral Director/Embalmer

Emily is a graduate of FINE mortuary and has been a funeral director for two years. She grew up in southeastern CT where she worked as a hairdresser and a nurses aide for 10 years. It was her time working in nursing homes where she realized she wanted to become a funeral director. Outside of the funeral home, she is passionate about animal welfare and volunteers frequently at animal shelters. At home, Emily lives with her husband, Spencer Shoop, and her adopted rescue pets: dogs Abby and Chance, Banana the bunny, and Peaches the cat.


Hannah Baldridge

Hannah Baldridge

Funeral Practitioner Trainee

However, after losing a close friend in 2016, she instead chose to go back to school to become a funeral director. She worked two years as a funeral assistant before moving to Biddeford to start her apprenticeship while attending FINE Mortuary College in Massachusetts. In her spare time, she continues to practice drawing and graphics design. Hannah is the oldest of four children.
