A modern Greenville funeral home
Renovated in 2013, our spacious funeral home features a modern, designer-decorated interior that makes you feel right at home. From the 300-seat chapel to our more intimate family rooms, arrangement offices, visitation rooms and courtyard fountain, Mackey Mortuary has several spaces for visiting with loved ones before or after memorial services.
Filled with natural light during the day, the chapel has beautiful wood pews and stained-glass windows at the front and on both sides of the aisles. New audiovisual equipment provides everything you need to for a multimedia tribute (which we can help you create, by the way). These amenities come together in a comfortable and inviting atmosphere for families and guests.
Our community room is a space for families to gather before, during or after a memorial or funeral service and is ideal for catered receptions. We work with licensed, professional caterers to plan all types of receptions, from simple cake and coffee or wine and cheese to a buffet lunch to a sit-down dinner with waiter service.
Mackey Mortuary has a private on-site crematory, which means your loved one never leaves our care. More and more people are choosing cremation over more traditional burial options, but most people aren’t familiar with all of their choices when it comes to cremation. You may choose a direct cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind; a funeral with the body present, followed by cremation; or a cremation followed by a cemetery service or a celebration of life.
Let's celebrate life
Every life deserves to be celebrated in a unique way. The dedicated funeral directors at Mackey Mortuary take the time to learn everything they can about your loved one to create a one-of-a-kind tribute that celebrates their passions in meaningful and memorable way.
A celebration could include grandpa's passion for golfing or mother's time-perfected strawberry pie recipe. From hiking to homebrewing, sewing to skydiving, there’s very little limit to the ways we can make a tribute special. And, of course, if you prefer a more traditional or religious service, we can do that too. We are committed to meeting your needs and expectations.
We are here for you
Mackey Mortuary is located at I-385 and North Pleasantburg Drive. For guests traveling by plane, the Greenville Downtown Airport is close by. Whether you’re making arrangements in advance or have an immediate need for our services, it’s our honor to help you arrange a celebration that deeply reflects the personality and passions of your loved one. Please come visit us to meet our friendly team and tour our contemporary funeral home facility.
Mackey Mortuary was established in 1872 and located for many years on East Washington Street. In 1926, James F. Mackey and Sons constructed a new home for its funeral business in the 300 block of North Main Street.
In 1969, the funeral home moved to its current location off Highway 385. In 2013, it underwent an interior renovation, adding a community room for events and catered receptions.
Today, the funeral home is a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers. Throughout our century-plus-long history, we have remained committed to delivering the highest level of care and compassion to the Greenville community.
Honoring veterans and public servants
Mackey Mortuary specializes in military veterans funerals, including funerals for homeless veterans. Through the Dignity Memorial Homeless Veterans Burial Program, a cooperative effort with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, local medical examiners, coroners, veterans’ advocates and veterans’ organizations, we provide free funeral services to homeless and indigent veterans.
We also participate in the Dignity Memorial Public Servants Program, which provides no-cost funeral services to career and volunteer law enforcement officers, firefighters and emergency services personnel who fall in the line of duty. In addition, the program offers extended counseling services to family members, as well as the opportunity to create an internet tribute as a loving memorial.
We care for the people of Greenville
Our involvement in the Greenville community doesn't end when the funeral is over. We offer anyone who is grieving access to our grief support services. We host seminars and support groups both on and off site, and our grief support library is available to all who need it.
Additionally, many of our team members participate in civic and service organizations: the Lions Club, Kiwanis Club, Sertoma and Rotary. Each year we contribute to various nonprofits such as the Alzheimer's Association, March of Dimes, YMCA, Greenville Symphony, Community Foundation, Greenville Health System’s Children's Hospital and The American Legion. Mackey Mortuary is also proud to sponsor the Widowed Persons Organization in Greenville.
