About Dennis Schoepp
Dennis Schoepp served countless families and his chosen profession with distinction for over 25 years in his close knit community. This dedicated, respected professional served as a policy board member for the state of Montana with the National Funeral Directors Association and served as district governor, president and secretary-treasurer of the Montana Funeral Directors Association.
He felt one never got used to death and that the funeral director needed to walk a fine line between being compassionate to the family and knowing when to give the family their space. Mr. Schoepp understood the importance of adapting to the changes in the industry in order to better serve his families.
The Schoepp Memorial Scholarship, established in 2010 by the Foundation’s Board of Trustees, honors one of Montana’s finest directors.
This annual scholarship is awarded to a full- or part-time student of funeral service from Montana who is enrolled in ABFSE-accredited programs and who intends to return to Montana to work in funeral service after graduation.
Recipients are selected by the Foundation’s Scholarship Sub-Committee, which is made up of members of the Board of Trustees and other members from the funeral service community.
