Possibly "Only the Lonely" with John Candy and Ally Sheedy? I know that she works in a mortuary and his mother (Maureen O'Hara) is doing anything to keep her and Candy apart.

Patron describes the plot as a romantic comedy. A young woman lives in the
mortuary her parents own, and she works for them dressing the bodies for
the funeral. She has trouble getting a date because once the guy finds out
what she does, he drops her. Eventually she does get a romance going.

It is NOT: My Girl, Night Shift, Death Becomes Her. There is nothing
supernatural in the movie.
Patron thinks it may be as old as the 1970s, but then again maybe not. Any
leads would be greatly appreciated.
