History

Chapel at Jones, Rich & Barnes Funeral HomeJones, Rich and Barnes Funeral Home has long been known for quality funeral services and welcomes all families with compassion and care.“We have a longstanding relationship with the community and are proud that, since 1838, we have served the families of Portland,” said Erik Tiner, manager of Jones, Rich and Barnes Funeral Home.

The Portland funeral home was originally founded as SS Rich and Son Funeral Home in 1838 by Samual Snow Rich. The business operated at facilities on Pearl Street, Exchange Street and Mellen Street before a new funeral home was constructed on Woodford Street in 1959.

Growing to better serve Portland

At the time of the move, the new Portland funeral home became Jones and Rich Funeral Home, as Edward C. Jones became part-owner along with his father-in-law, Irving Rich. After the death of Jones in 1974, his widow, Elizabeth “Betty” Rich Jones, and her son, David Jones, took over the business.

In 1979, the company purchased Hutchins Funeral Home and became Jones, Rich and Hutchins Funeral Home. Mrs. Jones died in 1983, and David Jones and Robert Barnes assumed the responsibility to operate the firm. In 1999, the location joined the network of Dignity Memorial® providers. Today, David Jones and Robert Barnes both serve as vice presidents.

Continuing our care

Service room at Jones, Rich & Barnes Funeral HomeOn January 17, 2017, Jones, Rich and Hutchins Funeral Home unveiled a new name: Jones, Rich and Barnes Funeral Home, recognizing the continued leadership of industry veteran Robert Barnes, a certified funeral service practitioner and vice president of the firm. Barnes, a licensed funeral director, has a long history with the funeral home dating back to 1975.

"We are honored to have Robert, who is well-known for his involvement in the Portland community along with his passion for serving families, on staff with a very involved role at the funeral home," said Erik Tiner. "We look forward to providing families with the quality, caring service they expect, while offering them personal funeral services."

"From the first call, the meeting with John and the last phone call, all went very well. I am very pleased with the care they gave my father. Even though they warned me that he wouldn't look normal due to the time he was found. They fixed so he look presentable and I could tell it was my dad. Thank your kindness and professionalism during such a sa

d time. It did help that my dad had a Pre Need in advance, my wife and I will do that soon and recommend it to all families, it helps the family who has lost their loved one and takes the pressure off them, hard to make arraignments while grieving."

"Everyone we interacted with was so kind, compassionate, and thorough in handling all the details with care and consideration. Having Nate Colson to guide us through the process and ensure all those details were attended to, and the staff that helped him do so, was appreciated beyond measure and took such a weight off especially in a time of grievi

ng. What struck me the most was the incredible job that was done with our loved one's hair and makeup, she looked so peaceful and as much like herself as possible, which is truly skillful and such a blessing for our last viewing. I cant express how much that meant to us. Also, the Reverend that Nate put us in touch with did a wonderful job, as did the florist. When we returned for the catered lunch, the staff had created a lovely display of the framed pictures we brought, plus they created a wonderful slide show and food presentation. Our loved one was known for her innate kindness, elegance and grace; and every aspect of the staff's handling of the details, presentation/set up, etc from her celebration of life service through to the burial service reflected that. Knowing your loved one is being given that level of care, respect and consideration for this last aspect of their life is critical. The same was true when Jones Rich & Barnes handled the services for other loved ones in our family forty and fifty years ago, which is why we returned. Making the pre-paid arrangements was also a help emotionally and financially. It is not easy emotionally to take that step, but ensures you/your loved ones have the peace of mind knowing your final affairs are attended to and reflect your wishes. We learned from experience it is far more difficult trying to make those decisions after the passing."
