History and Staff
Steele's was started with the belief that families should not have to pay high prices to receive the very best care in their time of need. In order to ensure substantial savings for families, we established welcoming, professional facilities with all the amenities of a traditional funeral home, but without the excessive overhead.
Our Staff’s Dedication to Respectful Care
A funeral, or memorial service, should provide family members and loved ones with the chance to reflect, remember, and celebrate a life well-lived. At Steele's Family Funeral Services, our goal is to create exceptional services and experiences that fulfill the wishes of your loved one. Our experienced Funeral Directors provide guidance on the crucial first steps toward healing.
