VALLEY CITY, N.D.—She's not the secretary, nor the wife of the pastor or the funeral director. Dawn Mathias has been mistaken for all three throughout her 15-year career as a licensed funeral director in North Dakota. Her name will soon be on the sign outside, which she hopes will help clients better understand her role at Lerud Schuldt Mathias Funeral Home. Mathias became co-owner of the business with Mike Lerud when his partner, Al Schuldt, retired Jan. 1.
