Four generations in the funeral business

A Knoxville landmark

Front exterior at Berry Funeral HomeSituated at 3704 Chapman Highway, Berry Funeral Home is a Knoxville landmark. The funeral home holds the prestigious Knoxville Beautification Orchid Award for 2009. Its beautiful mountain stone building, flower gardens and water feature make the perfect setting for the service of your choosing.

Showcasing seven staterooms and a large chapel highlighted by a wonderful cathedral ceiling, our stunning arts and crafts facility provides a lovely setting to honor those you love. Our chapel also has state-of-the-art music and media capabilities for your family pictures and video slideshows.

Let's celebrate life

Chapel at Berry Funeral HomeAt Berry Funeral Home, our team creates one-of-a-kind tributes that celebrate a person's passions and personality. We'll listen to you and your family to design a service that takes all of the things your loved one enjoyed, such as a favorite song, lifelong hobby or even a signature style, and weave them together to create an unforgettable memorial.

We can find inspiration almost anywhere. Imagine a motorcycle procession with his cherished chopper leading the way. Envision the chapel transformed into an art gallery with her paintings on the walls. Prefer a more traditional funeral service? We are happy to do that as well. We are committed to meeting your needs and wishes.

"As a mother who lost a son, which parents should not ever had to face, Meg Aubrey made this process so easy for the family. She listened to our wants and offered some suggestions and came up with some ideas of her own that went so well with our theme. She was so attentive to our needs and checked in on of continuously. my daughters and I have bonded with her and now consider her one of our extended family members. I don't know if I could have survived this without her being there to walk us through this most difficult time in our lives!! She is one in a million!❤️"
