About Renaissance Funeral Home and Historic Oakwood Cemetery

Heather Hill is a funeral director at Renaissance Funeral Home in Raleigh, NC.  Heather is new to the funeral industry and feels that her past careers in the healthcare field and traveling the world as a flight attendant has led her to this passion.

She also advocates for green burial, end of life care and providing meaningful memorial services.  Heather is a recent widow and is raising three children along with the help of her close family and friends. Having experienced such a profound loss in her life, she can connect with others at their level and offer support and a shoulder to lean on.
