Who We Are
Jody Michael Armata, resident owner of Northshore Funeral Services, has served hundreds of families during his 35 years as a licensed funeral director.
Since he was young man, Jody had a strong desire to become a funeral director and fulfilled that dream in 1975. Truly dedicated to his profession, Jody has helped hundreds of families and is highly respected as one of the top funeral directors and cosmetologists in the state of Wisconsin.
Jody is the only funeral director at Northshore Funeral Services and takes pride in speaking with families directly—you will never leave a message with an answering service. He is on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Jody listens carefully to his customer’s wishes and tailors individual services to honor the memory of their loved one. He is also available for family or group presentations to discuss any aspect of funeral services including grief counseling.
Behind the scenes at Northshore is a group of talented people who coordinate maintenance, gardening, bookkeeping and marketing. Together we have created a team that is dedicated to providing exceptional service to our customers.
An important member of the family is Andrew, our Canine Comfort Dog. Andrew is usually present during the planning stage, and often is asked by families to participate in the funeral itself. He has an uncanny ability to sense the person in the room who needs the most attention and to give that person comfort. Northshore was the first funeral service in the state to have a Canine Comfort Dog and we have been lucky to include Andrew as a part of our exceptional customer service for 10 years.
