WELLSVILLE — Roberts Funeral Home is announcing the newest addition to its staff, as she returns to work in her hometown.

Amy R. (Clutter) Greenaway is the newest member of Roberts Funeral Home, located on Main Street, Wellsville. She is a licensed funeral director and embalmer, and has been with the family owned-and-operated service since June.

The daughter of Bradley and Clara Clutter of Wellsville, Greenaway is a 1986 graduate of Wellsville High School and earned a degree in psychology from Kent State University soon afterward. For 20 years, she served as a case manager at The Counseling Center in Lisbon, which provide community support and outreach.

Following two decades in counseling, Greenaway decided on a career change and went into the funeral service. She attended Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science, where she graduated in 2014. After completing her internship, she accepted a position as a funeral director and embalmer in Sidney, Mont.

While in Sidney, she was responsible for the arrangement of funerals and cremations, family-farm burials and organization of multi-cultural funeral services, including the burial of Native Americans. She also performed duties of the coroner, while also gaining experience in cemetery operations and headstone design.

Greenaway ultimately returned to the area and worked as the Director of Development at the Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science before joining Roberts Funeral Home.

Greenaway has served several active roles in the community, including as a Zumba instructor in both Wellsville and Sidney; a volunteer with the Tri-State Pottery Festival; and as a member of the Elks, Moose and Lions clubs while in Sidney.

“The Roberts family and the entire staff at Roberts Funeral Home are delighted to have Amy join them in serving Wellsville and the surrounding area,” according to a statement from the funeral home. “Amy is a kind, hard-working, and compassionate woman. She brings with her a unique background of experience, and she will continue to be an asset to the funeral industry and to the community.”

Greenaway resides in the area with her husband Wade and daughter Halee.
