About

Behm Funeral Homes in Jefferson, Pennsylvania, is a trusted provider of custom funeral and cremation services. Since 1961, our professional team has been here to celebrate the details of your loved one's life—and to take care of your family as if they were our own.

Personalized funerals and memorials

How will you honor your loved one’s legacy? At Behm Funeral Homes, we are experts at creating unique and memorable tributes that reflect a loved one's passions and personality.

If he was a world-class grill master, we can put together a celebratory cookout, complete with his secret dry rub recipe. Maybe her banana pudding and chocolate chess pie are worthy of a dessert buffet? We can display a collection of paintings or quilts, dress up in sports jerseys or theatrical costumes, or release 100 red balloons.

From small details like photos and funeral favors to custom decor and a live band—whatever the case may be—we will craft a memorial that warms hearts, lifts spirits and deeply reflects the life of your loved one.

We offer many planning ideas and resources.
