Christine Toson Hentges Blazing a New Trail at ICCFA

“Christine Toson Hentges may not have planned to follow in her father’s footsteps, but fate has a funny way of intervening in people’s lives. Two years ago, Hentges was named president and CEO of The Tribute Companies, taking over the reins of the company founded by her father, Bill, in 1973. This month, Hentges, who was recognized with a Trailblazer Award in 2014 from Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, is adding a new title – president of the International, Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association. We recently talked with Hentges about her finding her way into the death-care profession, her fight for the right to operate combination operations in Wisconsin, her new role as ICCFA president and more.” Patti Martin Bartsche reports.
