A funeral home with a passion for life

Pavilion at Marsh Funeral Home

Marsh Funeral Home sits on 2.5 green acres, and was built to feel like home for you, your family and friends. Our facility has a large chapel with flexible seating, a coffee lounge and plenty of parking. It is a comfortable place to plan a funeral and celebrate a life.

Our caring team, fluent in both Spanish and English, is committed to serving families of various backgrounds with dignity and respect. Our goal is to create memorial services that are as unique as the lives they honor.

Personalized services

Perhaps you want a traditional funeral at a church followed by a catered lunch. Maybe it's a cremation with a small gathering of close friends and family over cake and coffee. Or you may envision a no-holds-barred celebration of life, complete Chicago blues, deep-dish pizza and a soulful send-off that reflects the truest passions of yourself or your loved one.

From baseball to board games, reading to race cars, bird-shaped urns to blue marble monuments, we take the time to discover the things that mattered most to someone and string them together to create a singular, heartfelt memorial.

Cremation services

We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our transparent pricing. With expertise in scattering ashes and a friendly team who pays attention to every detail, we provide service that is second to none.

More and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with the many options:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.

For those who wish for a more momentous memorial, Neptune Memorial Reef is an underwater cremation garden off the coast of Florida. A Celestis Memorial Spaceflight takes ashes into space for a little while or forever.

There are many options for cremation—and they're not all equal. Here's what you can expect when you choose us for your loved one's cremation:

  • Custody of care guaranteed. Our custody-of-care program helps safeguard the identification of your loved one from the time we bring them into our care until the time we return them to your family. We check, cross-check and check again, every step of the way.
  • Exclusive custody of your loved one. We use only crematories owned and operated by Dignity Memorial® providers or trusted partners. Once your loved one is in our custody or that of a trusted partner, they’re in our care until they’re returned to your family.
  • Licensed, certified, conscientious staff. All Dignity Memorial crematory operators are licensed and certified by Cremation Association of North America, or CANA. Only one person at a time is cremated, and the cremation chamber is thoroughly cleaned before the next person is cremated.

"Marella and Todd were compassionate and empathetic. They walked me and my siblings through the entire process and I felt like I didn't need to worry about anything. We had to transport my mother from out of state and they took care of everything. They were absolutely wonderful."
