Abstract:

Funeral director Carolyn Whigham was born on January 5, 1949, in Newark, New Jersey, daughter of Marie Whigham and Whigham Funeral Home founder, Charles L. Whigham. She was one of ten children of color who matriculated at Vailsburg High School in Newark. Whigham married Malcolm N.

Whigham divorced in 1984, and returned to Newark, where she attended and graduated from the American Academy McAllister School of Mortuary Science in 1986. That year, she took over Whigham Funeral Home as director, upon her father's retirement. During her tenure as funeral director of Whigham Funeral Home, she oversaw the funerals of jazz singer Sarah Vaughan, Whitney Houston's father John Russell Houston, U.S. Congressman Donald Payne, Sr., and singer Whitney Houston.
