I was thinking the exact same thing Amber! How in the world was this woman not embalmed? Now that explains it.

Their funerals are open casket though, so if you woke up, you'd see all your loved ones first thing because they stand over you watching you during the service. Maybe it's in case someone wakes up... lol.

I think it depends on their ethnicity/religious group. I know that my husband is part of a break away sect of Russians who do NOT embalm the body which is opposite traditional Russian practice (at least as done in the Orthodox Church during the time they broke away). If she'd been embalmed I'm pretty sure that would have killed her if she wasn't dead.

Holy cow!! I know that this used to be common in the old days...I mean, that's where we get the "graveyard" shift from. How does it happen now though??

Also, I'm assuming that they don't prep bodies for funerals the way we do here?
