Meet Deb Westfahl

by Ryan Snyder
 
Deb Westfahl,
Packaging and Final Assembly
Deb has been with Trigard for approximately five years and works in our packaging area. She is responsible for cleaning, inspecting, and preparing Serenity® infant/ child casket vaults and urn vaults for packaging; assists with monthly inventory counts, production reporting, packaging our wall displays and printing of our Appliqués®.

I asked Deb what she most enjoyed about working at Trigard, and she said, "I enjoy helping people, and I feel that is what Trigard is all about."

Deb takes the quality of the product being sent out seriously and is careful to thoroughly inspect every piece to ensure you and the families you serve are satisfied.  She understands the importance of our customers and values their relationships.  "I love when I am able to meet the customers. In the last five years, those are the days that stand out."

Thinking about the young lives our Serenity products help honor, it can be difficult to prepare and package these products. As I talked with Deb, she shared how she deals with the emotions. "As I prepare the Serenity's, especially when I place the interior and teddy bear, my thoughts and prayers are always with the parents. I pray for comfort and strength and that they will draw close to Jesus, who now embraces their special gift that they had for such a short time. I have one daughter, and I am very blessed every day. I cherish the time I spend with her."  

Deb is one of the many employees that we have that understands the magnitude and significance of what we produce each day; it is so much more than producing a part. We have the privilege of making a product that will protect and care for someone's loved one. Remember why we are here every day, what we are doing and how much of an impact we have on the families we serve.

Product highlight: Elite® Urn Vault

Our finest, most well-appointed urn vault, the Elite, combines the strength and beauty of the Aegean® with yet another layer of protection and additional custom options. For the Elite, hand-crafted sheeting of stainless steel, copper, or bronze is bonded to the interior lining, while a matching metal cap is added to the exterior cover. Decorative emblems are also available, for an added level of personalization. A lightweight concrete version is also available in white marble and rose granite.
