Johnelle Eilers

Johnelle Eilers

Administrative Assistant / Ambassador

I am a retired hairdresser of 27 years. I started doing hair at Sterling-White through the years and was hired as an ambassador and now work as an administrative assistant at the front desk. I have worked at Sterling-White Funeral Home since early 2006. I grew up in Highlands and have lived in Crosby for more than 40 years, so I know a lot of the families that come through our doors. I feel like it makes them more comfortable in an uncomfortable situation to see a familiar face and receive a warm hug and a smile. I enjoy my work here and look forward to many more years.

I have two grown children, four bonus children, six grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren who help fill up my time. I have a place at Crystal Beach I dearly love to spend time at with all of my family. I am a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Crosby.

Kathy has been married to Ernie Roder for nearly 50 years, together they have three grown children, seven grandchildren, and seven grand dogs.

Kelsey Richard Prince

Kelsey Richard Prince

Family Service Representative

Kelsey began her career with Sterling-White in 2020. She was born in Texas but spent her childhood years growing up in Louisiana. As a young adult, Kelsey came back to her Texas roots and graduated from Lumberton High School in the top 10% of her class. She then started a career in the dental field. After moving from the clinical side of a dental office, to the administration side, her interest started to fade. Kelsey has always had a passion for helping people, and she no longer felt that her career reflected her true desire. Therefore she decided to make a change. Kelsey is very passionate about helping families get through an emotionally devastating time – losing a loved one- as well as helping them plan ahead.

Kelsey raises her 3 children, 2 girls and a boy, with her husband of 6 years. She is a member of Infant Jesus Catholic church. Her free time is spent at the softball / baseball fields, or watching the newest Marvel filmography.
