Personalized funeral services
At Groover Funeral Home, we begin by listening to you to discover traits that define a lifetime. Share a favorite song, fashion style or defining decade, and we will work to incorporate these elements into a memorial to be treasured by all who attend.
Catering can be customized to reflect a preferred palate or incorporate a secret family recipe. Audiovisual presentations—from photo slideshows to music playlists—evoke emotion and inspiration. Whatever you envision, the licensed funeral directors at Groover Funeral Home specialize in creating tailored tributes to meet your final wishes.
Flexible chapel space
Our chapel warmly welcomes celebrants of all faith traditions and cultural backgrounds. Inside, you’ll find a flexible reception area that adapts to your needs, whether you envision a large and lively gathering of friends or a small and intimate retreat for close family.
