History & Staff

Our Story

Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.

Ever since we opened our gates we have approached life (and death) differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a burial ground. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.

Why Us?

In a nutshell? Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy.

Why Us?

We've learned a lot over many years. Like how to present options without overwhelming. And how to meet the needs of many caring parties. People come to us in difficult times, and we respond kindness, calmness and expertise. Our goal is to create a beautiful occasion and make you feel welcome, always. We spend our days planning with families. We stay up to date with industry developments. And we make hard times a little easier.

The Slay family has been helping families in this area with their funeral needs since 1986.  We provide a special place where loved ones can be remembered.  We understand that every person is special and unique.  Therefore, we feel that their life should be honored in the same way.  The details and those “special touches” that are added to arrangements are important to you and your family, and we are here to help guide you through this process.  Our staff is dedicated to providing professional attention to detail and quality service.  We believe in caring for your family as our own to ensure your comfort and ease during this difficult time.
