North Carolina sisters who went to view their mom's body at a funeral home found another woman wearing her clothes inside the casket

 Two North Carolina sisters were furious after they were set to view their deceased mother's body at a funeral home and instead found another woman wearing her clothes. 

Jennifer Taylor and Jennetta Archer had gone to see their mother's body at an Ahoskie funeral home Sept. 7 when they discovered the mistake, WAVY reported.

Archer said there was no resemblance between their mother and the woman who was in the casket.

The proof was in the outfit the woman was wearing, which belonged to their mother. 

She said the unidentified woman 'was swimming in the clothes because she was so small compared to my mother.' 

The sisters approached workers at Hunter's Funeral Home, who at first denied the woman was someone else until they went back into the embalming room and saw the body of Mary Archer.

Archer said in a later Facebook post that the body of the woman in her mother's clothes was Evelyn Pugh Brown. 

The funeral home switched the bodies and the service continued.

The funeral home said it has reached out to the family to apologize, but Taylor and Archer said they have not received a call from the funeral home and are awaiting answers to their questions. 

'Our request for an apology was ultimately ignored ,' Archer wrote. 'When Hunter's Funeral Home was contacted to confirm today's meeting, we were told that 'they' (you know who you are' was out of the office until Friday.'  

An official was not immediately available for additional comment Thursday.
