Christine Brennan

Licensed Funeral Director / Embalmer
Office Phone: (618) 365-6119

I received my Associates of Applied Science degree from St. Louis Community College in mortuary science.  I maintained a grade point average to be on the Dean’s list and was honored to have been elected a class officer by fellow classmates.

I am a licensed funeral director/embalmer and life insurance agent in the state of Illinois. I am also a certified cremator through Matthews Cremation, a member of the National Funeral Directors Association, the Illinois Funeral Directors Association, member and past President of the St. Clair County Funeral Directors Association, and a member of the Collinsville Chamber of Commerce.

Prior to entering funeral service, I was a legal assistant for over 20 years. Some of my accomplishments during my career in law include being elected an officer of the St. Clair County Legal Professionals Association and being nominated for Outstanding Young Woman of America.

I am a lifelong resident of Collinsville, Illinois and a lifelong member of St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church. I also served as a board member of St. Peter and Paul Catholic Cemetery.
