History & Staff

Our Story

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

Ever since we opened our doors 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.

Learn the legacy.

The home which eventually became the Stonacek Memorial Chapel was built in 1895 by the H.H. Mohr family. Herman Mohr operated the lumber yard now owned by Robert Carhart. Daniel Duff purchased the home in 1914 and sold it in 1919 to Frank Strelow.

The home was purchased by Bill and Sharon Stonacek in 1960 and converted to the present business, Stonacek Memorial Chapel.

In 1963, the chapel was enlarged and in 1965 the round porch was torn off and a business and arrangement office, bathroom and casket room were added. At that time, the living quarters were also enlarged upstairs. The wooden porch and wooden steps were replaced with cement and brick and the new pillars were completed in 1975. In 1985, the preparation room was enlarged and a music room was added.
