Who we are

Signature Funerals is a locally owned, storefront, full service funeral firm that wants to provide you with a level of service that will help you in the best way possible.  Because we are a smaller firm with much lower overhead than a traditional funeral home, we can offer you a personal approach with flexible options and pricing, based on your wishes.  Our hope is that you will find comfort and trust with our services, in a difficult time.
