About

Cole Funeral Home has provided exceptional funeral and cremation services to the McGregor, Moody, Oglesby and Crawford areas since 1978. Over the years, our commitment to serve the families of the region with a tradition of excellence has remained unchanged while we always respond to the evolving needs of the community. Cole Chapel is a convenient place for Moody families to host visitations or small memorial services.

Personalized funerals

Our mission at Cole Funeral Home is to help families create personalized funerals and memorials. This approach keeps us open to traditional religious rites as well as contemporary gatherings that deeply reflect a person's life. That means that whether you want a basic cremation with cremains scattered in a personally meaningful place, a funeral in our cozy chapel with cemetery burial nearby, or a modern celebration of life with live music, favorite foods and a send-off that expresses the passions of yourself or your loved one, we are happy to deliver.

Want an afternoon ice cream social? Or maybe an evening wine and cheese gathering is a better fit. Were you thinking about a Texas-themed funeral complete with a BBQ, band and attendees all in boots? If you can imagine it, we can make it happen.

Cremation services

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.

"Lionel, the Funeral Director, was just excellent to work with and very empathetic towards our loss. He's just a pleasant person. Additionally, Marsha, the Office Mgr. was very helpful and extremely nice as well. I would highly recommend this funeral home to anyone. Their service before and after the funeral was exceptional. The follow up with the death certificates, books ordered, ashes, etc... was very professional!"
