In addition to service being the most important part of what we do, we work hard to make our funeral home feel like a second home, full of peace, comfort and warmth, for all who come in. Throughout the years, we have expanded our facilities to provide you and your family only the best.

Our funeral home exterior has undergone two major renovations since our opening in 1948. In 1953, we remodeled for the first time. During this remodel we added to our original parlor, creating a total of three parlors.

Our second remodel in 1969, took our funeral home to what many of you have come to know now. We added our two front parlors, expanding our building to the sidewalk.

In later years, we would combine the three parlors created in the 1953 remodel into our current larger parlor we offer our families today.

In the 1980s, we added an indoor ramp to our funeral home, which allowed us to better serve those with mobility concerns, as well as doubling our parking by expanding the parking lot.

Understanding that families value the chance to often see merchandise such as caskets and vaults, urns, printing work, and other memorial merchandise, we installed our own showroom in 2004. In 2006, we expanded and renovated our arrangement offices, allowing us to better serve families while making decisions.

In late 2019, we began our next remodeling of the funeral home. Once completed with this remodeling, we will have new arrangement offices and show room, as well as reception facility to better accommodate our families who wish to have funeral receptions. In addition, we will be creating a space for children to be able to relax while here for visitations and services, understanding that they often need a chance to be able to run and play with other children who may be in attendance. We will also be redecorating our parlors to continue making them warm and inviting to all who come to grieve their loved ones. We anticipate this remodeling to be completed in time for our 75th anniversary in October, 2023.
