History & Staff

We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.

Our Mission

Grace Funeral Chapels believes in the sanctity and dignity of life. Memorization of our loved ones has meaning, not because a death has occurred but because a life has been lived, and that life deserves respect, dignity, honor, remembrance, and the opportunity for all who shared in that life to pause at the closing of that life to reflect and react. Grace Funeral Chapels has a sincere concern and commitment to our families and our community. We are an independent company and not part of a large chain, which enables us to give personalized service to each family. We are part of our community because we live here, we work here, and our children go to school here. We are pleased to contribute back to our community.

Our goal is to tailor a memorization program that will afford our families a lasting tribute to their loved ones, with taste, elegance, and professionalism from our caring and compassionate Licensed Funeral Directors and staff, within the means of all whom we are honored to serve. We never turn a family away. We serve all faiths, all people from all walks of life. We respect all religions, cultures, and lifestyles.

Our mission is to be there when you need us.
