The team at Siferd-Orians Funeral Home in Lima, Ohio, works toward a single goal: celebrate life. From traditional religious funerals to contemporary gatherings, we create unique memorials that reflect lives lived.
Funeral ceremonies to suit every style
Share your stories of a person's passionate pursuits—a lifelong hobby, an inimitable style or an uncommon love of something special—and our funeral directors will work to incorporate elements that reflect the individual. Imagine a high-horsepower salute to the gearhead who spent every spare moment in her garage, with a car show in our parking lot before the funeral. Then, when guests leave, they take home keepsakes of imprinted die-cast cars as tokens of remembrance. Or if your loved one was a painter, envision an exhibition of the artist’s works, in a gallery-themed service ending in a guided tour.
Whatever type of service you choose, let us guide you through securing every important detail, from decor selection to the music playlist. Our flexible funeral home space adapts to meet the size and nature of your guest list, making it possible to fulfill almost any final wish. And you can leave the catering to us, with delicious dishes professionally prepared, which eases the burden and frees you up to spend more time with those who matter most.
Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process and different options. From a direct cremation without a memorial service or a witness cremation to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand this increasingly common choice—and handle all of the cremation arrangements.
Contact us, day or night
We assist families from Vaughnsville to Wapakoneta in a tradition dating back to 1913. Please contact us anytime if we may assist with funeral or cremation arrangements or if we can give you a tour of our interfaith chapel and reception space.
In 1913, Charles C. Siferd moved his family from Wapakoneta to establish Charles C. Siferd Funeral Home in Lima, Ohio, on South Main Street. In those days, funeral homes were operated as storefront businesses with many funerals held in private residences.
His son, Theodore "Ted" W. Siferd, became a business partner. Ted conducted his first funeral in 1920. Following the death of Charles in 1947, Ted continued alone until 1958, when he partnered with his son, Charles "Chuck" D. Siferd. Together, they opened a modern funeral home, then called the Westwood Chapel, at 506 North Cable Road.
Today, the experienced team of Siferd-Orians provides families a true family environment. We’re honored to assist you in a time of need.
