A funeral parlor worker in Beijing has devoted herself to preparing over 20,000 dead bodies for ceremonies over the past eight years due to her inspirational effort and persistence.


Yang Weiwei, 29, works at Beijing Babaoshan Funeral Parlor, where she was the company's first ever female employee. 


She originally studied for a social work degree at university, but then changed her major to funeral services to improve her ability to find a job later on.


During her work, no matter what kind of requests are made by family members of the deceased, she always tries to satisfy them.


She had thought about giving up her job many times, but she always chose to stay when she saw the peaceful faces of the dead and received thanks from their family. 


Yang receives a great sense of satisfaction from her job, which includes applying make-up to the deceased's faces, because she helps those who are alive and those who have passed away at the same time. 


Since she was hired, Babaoshan Funeral Parlor has continuously recruited female employees and established a special work room to serve deceased women.


Most of her leisure time is spent with her family. It is the happiest thing for her to accompany them, Yang says.
