During times of sorrow, families gather and look to their relatives and friends for support. They come to support each other, to honor the life lived and to help themselves adjust to the changes in their own lives.

We respond to family’s needs with respect, carefully listening to their wishes and implementing their suggestions to reflect a true and meaningful personalized service. Families are provided with an atmosphere to freely choose a service that is appropriate to their needs. Our wish is to serve families of every faith or creed with dignity and integrity. We believe in a service that honors and remembers the life that was lived and commemorates the person who shared the joy and the tears.

We care about the people of our community. Our commitment to the community extends beyond our profession. We make a special effort to support groups and service organizations which improve the quality of life for all those who call Salem and the surrounding communities home.

We offer a variety of pre-payment programs which allow you to control your cost, avoid emotional overspending and prepare for tomorrow by paying today’s price. We can meet with you at your convenience to explain the various programs and answer any questions.
