Erin M. Petermeier
Licensed Funeral Director
Erin was born in California and moved to Alexandria with her
family in 1971. She is a graduate of Jefferson Senior High School in
Alexandria and received her Degree in Mortuary Science from the University of
Minnesota. After graduation Erin returned to join her parents at
Petermeier’s Alexandria Funeral Home and later the Anderson Funeral Home in
2007, when the two merged.
The main reason I became a funeral director was my desire to
help people. Growing up in funeral service I saw how my parents helped families
and this helped influence me to choose this as a career. Now I have the
honor of serving families that were influential in making me who I am today. I
am truly blessed to be able to give back to them and other families who I have
met over the 28 years I have served this community. To be a part of remembering
and honoring someone’s life is one of the greatest honors I can have.
I feel it is important to give back to our community and I
have enjoyed being President of Business & Professional Women and Jaycees
as well as serving on the St. Mary’s Block Party Committee. All of these
organizations and events have in some way made our community better, whether it
was through Jingle Bells, women in the work force or just enjoying a day of
fellowship as a whole community.
My husband, Chuck and I both enjoy living in this area and
feel blessed to be able to raise our two daughters, Ashley and Kaitlyn, in this
community. As a family we enjoy time on the area lakes, attending our
daughter’s events and doing different activities with family and friends.
