Milagros Santiago-SmithFuneral Director & Embalmer
Milagros is a native of New York City but has lived and worked in the Cincinnati area since the mid ’90s. She obtained her Bachelor of Science in Mortuary Science at the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science in 2002 with a dual license as a funeral director and embalmer. What started out as an interest in the science behind the stages of death became a love for caring for families and their deceased loved ones. She has worked at multiple funeral homes throughout the Cincinnati area, enabling her to better understand the various needs of the families she has served. Milagros joined Spring Grove Funeral Homes in 2015, where she serves primarily as an embalmer and assists as a licensed funeral director. She is the proud mother of 3 adult children and has been happily married to her husband, Sherman for 24 years. Her favorite Bible verse is Romans 14:8. Her motivation to continue in her care of families is when she sees someone’s loved one, she pictures “her mother”, “her father”, her loved ones...reminder that when we stop caring it’s time to do something else.
