Our Story

Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.

Ever since we opened our gates we have approached life (and death) differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a burial ground. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.

Why Us?

In a nutshell? Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy.

Learn the legacy.

•Our very personalized service provided by all of our exceptional Kempf Family team members sets us apart from other funeral homes and death care providers. We treat everyone that calls us like they are our family.

•Our professional staff’s ability to listen to your family, to learn about your loved one and your family. To hear what you want and need, and then to give your our best advice and accomplish everything you wanted done that will help you as you grieve, long beyond the time you are here with us.

•Our follow up with you long after your family member’s death to help you with everything you need from how to deal with government agencies involved such as Social Security to contacting life insurance companies and doing claim work for your family. We want to do everything we can to take all the burden we can from you.

•Our reputation to offer personalized and affordable service and necessary burial and cremation products to meet everyone’s needs.

•Our reputation to be the first call to be the resource for anything our community needs due to the loss of someone due to their death. 

We strongly believe the success of any business requires dedication and professionalism. What we provide our community also requires a deep degree of compassion, kindness and attention to detail. You’ll find these qualities in each and every member of our staff at Kempf Family Funeral Homes.

We promise that when you put your trust in us, we will make this experience as comfortable and healing as possible.
