In September of 1989 Michael graduated from Worsham College of Mortuary Science in Chicago, the same mortuary school that his grandfather and father had graduated from. For twenty years, Michael worked at funeral homes in Monmouth, Decatur and Springfield. In March of 2010 he came to work with his father.
Michael and Amy (Hundley) were married in 2015 in Kincaid at the Masterson Funeral Home chapel.
As Amy continued her nursing career in the hospice field, she attended DMACC obtaining her second degree in mortuary science working along side of Michael as a licensed funeral director. As a U. S. Army Veteran, she holds a special place in her heart for those who have served.
Michael and Amy purchased the business from Richard upon his retirement in September, 2017 and expanded the name to incorporate cremation services.
In 2020, Michael and Amy celebrated 100 years of continued funeral service by the Masterson family.
"We are humbled and blessed to care for the families that we serve, that we have known throughout our lives and cherish as family." - Amy & Mike
