The passing of a GCA Friend

Carolyn May

Carolyn May, age 75, passed away on Monday, September 16, 2019, in San Antonio, Tx, after battling Parkinson's Disease and other health issues the last several years. Carolyn had been in the cemetery profession since 1987, starting in Austin, Tx. She was one of the best Preneed Counselors and Sales Managers we've ever had in our profession, winning several awards for both her personal sales and location sales. She worked for Golden Era Services, The Loftis Corporation, Equity Corporation International, Service Corporation International and Stewart Enterprises, in Texas, South Carolina and North Carolina and most recently was the Manager at White Chapel Memorial Gardens in Duluth, Ga. Unfortunately her health issues forced her to retire early several years ago. Carolyn also was very involved with prison ministry work for many years, even opening up her home for several parolees, providing them with assistance and spiritual guidance getting their lives back on track. She authored a book of Christian poetry a few years ago and even with failing health was still active with her church and in-home Bible study groups. She is survived by her husband, Bill in Tx.; two daughters, Debbie and Karen in Tx.; and her son, Mark Hinson, who is the current Manager at White Chapel Memorial Gardens. She was a talented, devoted lady who will be missed greatly by her family and many friends! Tim Smith and Nancy Massingille, Gwinnett Cemeteries, LLC

Weathering Natural Disasters

Communication is Key

In times of trouble, employees are often unaware of who to call to discuss whether or not they should report to work. Taking into consideration both employment regulations and best principles of management, our Seay's HR Management partners share a policy employers may wish to incorporate. If you are a GCA member, please refer to your Sept 3rd, newsletter or contact the GCA office.
