Kids and Family RoomTo better meet the needs of our community, we have recently built an addition to Lakeview Funeral Home that offers total accessibility and ADA compliance (wheelchair accessibility) throughout the facility. As part of the addition, we renovated the family rooms on the lower level with special attention to our “Kids Room” providing cable TV, game tables, artist corner, and fish tank. While the addition offers our guests all the modern amenities, the visitation parlors maintain the traditional architecture and design that we are well-known for in the neighborhood.

Each family that arranges for a service is given a commemorative TREE of LIFE to be planted in memory of the deceased. Many of the recipients of this memorial continue to contact us for years with stories of the impact that planting this tree has had on the family dealing with the loss of their loved one. For those who do not have the place to plant a tree or are unable to undertake the task of planting, the TREE of LIFE is planted in an urban environment honoring your loved one. It is with great pride that Lakeview Funeral Home has continued with this living memorial to the lives of those we have served for decades. This is just one of the ways that we continue to show compassion and respect for the loss that each family experiences.

We have developed and expanded on a strong commitment to the emotional aftercare of the family and friends of those we have served. Since 1989, we have hosted a Grief Recovery Support Group that meets on Mondays and also have sponsored an Annual Memorial Service for the past 17 years that has been a continuation of our commitment of “honoring the life” of those who have died.

Our staff is dedicated to providing each family with caring service before, during and after the funeral. Now in our second century of service, the Lakeview Funeral Home remains a family-owned business within our community. One item that has remained constant is our continued commitment to meeting the changing needs of the families we serve, and providing the highest level of professionalism in all that we accomplish.
