College Corner funeral home with a heart

As a locally operated funeral home in College Corner, our caring team provides the small-town care families expect and need. Our funeral directors take the time to get to know each family we serve, so we can create a tribute that honors your loved one. It's this commitment to the community that enables us to build trusting, long-lasting relationships while providing the guidance you need.

At Showalter Blackwell Long Funeral Home, we understand that planning a funeral—especially after the loss of a loved one—can seem overwhelming. That's why we focus on individual attention and assisting families through each step of the funeral planning process. Whether you prefer a traditional funeral, cremation with memorial service or contemporary celebration of life, we'll be there every step of the way.

Share your stories

We believe funeral and memorial services should reflect individuality and represent each person's journey. As we work to plan a fitting funeral or cremation with memorial service, we welcome you to share details about your loved one. Did they enjoy the outdoors, were they active in a charity or did they serve in the military? Whatever their passions, we'll find ways to weave those elements into a service that showcases their life with respect and care.

In addition, our funeral home team will explain funeral costs, help write obituaries, arrange catering and other important aspects that will help guests fondly remember the memorial service and their experience for years to come.

Showalter Blackwell Long Funeral Home welcomes people from all walks of life. It's our honor to serve the community, so please call or come by to learn about your options with our welcoming funeral home in College Corner.
