Foyer & Arrangement Office
The funeral is an important opportunity to pay tribute to someone you loved. It is a time for relatives and friends to gather tell stories, to share memories, to acknowledge your loss and support one another. We are open-minded in providing a more personal arrangement to suit your needs and reflect the life of your loved one.
We've worked hard to make the surroundings as comforting as possible, for you during this difficult time. Please note our Foyer and Funeral Arrangement Room below.
Our visitation rooms have been tastefully decorated to ensure comfort and serenity at the time of a loss. Designed to be flexible in their use, our visitation rooms can accommodate everything from a traditional period of visitation - to a more contemporary memorial visitation - to a private family service.
Visitation Room A - Visiting area when a small family atmosphere is desired.
Visitation Room B - Another of our beautifully appointed visiting rooms.
Although our chapel is not intended to compete against the reverence and respect of the church, it has been tastefully designed as an option for those who do not wish a formal church setting. Conveniently located within the funeral home, it provides a dignified setting for family, friends and the community to gather together and pay tribute to the deceased.
Chapel - The largest chapel in Southeast Missouri to serve every need.

The coffee lounge provides a welcome break to collect your thoughts, or reminisce with others. There is always hot coffee waiting for you. We would like you to feel comfortable when receiving friends and family at the time of loss. Our home is yours. Our staff will ensure that your family and friends are treated with the hospitality that you would extend in a less difficult and emotional time in your own home.
Other areas of the funeral home are included here. These areas are here for the use of those we serve to make their time of grief more bearable
