Ms. Ridley was born and raised in Boston. She graduated from
the University of Massachusetts at Amherst with a Bachelor’s Degree in
Economics. She became interested in funeral service when Mrs. Davis
approached the pastor in Rebecca’s church to ask if he knew a young person who
might be a good candidate for a career as a funeral director. The Pastor
recommended Rebecca Ridley, whose eyes were opened to a new and inspiring
direction in life. Rebecca subsequently attended and received a Diploma
in Funeral Service from Mount Ida College, becoming a licensed Funeral Director
and Embalmer in 1992.
After ten years, the former owner of Davis Funeral Home entrusted
Rebecca with the legacy she and her husband began in 1935. Rebecca
purchased the Davis Funeral Home from Mrs. Davis in 2001. She is Past
President of the Massachusetts Funeral Directors Association, and currently serves on the Board of Advisors of the Roxbury YMCA.

that I found my purpose in life. My singular resolve is to serve bereaved
families and the communities where they live.”
