LaRae Backeberg


Funeral Director / Embalmer
LaRae was born and raised in the small town of Miles City, Montana. During her senior year of high school in 2006, she started working at the local funeral home. After the sudden loss of her Grandfather in 2007, she developed a true passion to assist others that are experiencing the loss of a loved one at such a young age. LaRae graduated from Mount Hood Mortuary College (Portland, Oregon) in 2010. She moved back to Montana and continued to work for the same family in Helena, Montana. There she met her husband, Bryan who is now a Firefighter for the City of Avondale. They got married in 2013 and have 2 young rambunctious boys, Carter and Kayde, and their 2 dogs, Baylee and Dexter. Together they enjoy outdoor activities like golfing, hiking, family bike rides to the park, and watching their sons play sports. LaRae joined the Hansen Family in May of 2019 when their family relocated to Phoenix. She is extremely proud to be a part of the Hansen Team.
