Bennett Funeral Service

Robbie Bennett of Bennett Funeral Service will guide your family in creating a meaningful ceremony to honor the life and memory of a loved one. A ceremony can be anything you wish it to be: simple or elaborate, traditional or unique. No matter how it's tailored, such a ceremony is an important step in recovering from loss.

We at Bennett Funeral Service would like to thank you for joining us here on our website, allowing us to bring our family-owned funeral service into the comfort and privacy or your own home. Furnishing this site to the public is our next step in the commitment we have made to offering the highest standard of care and compassion to each and every family we serve during the most difficult time in their lives.

In a world that grows increasingly corporate and impersonal, we  maintain our idenity as a family-owned business, where all decisions are made locally and each family is treated in a personal and individual manner.

Through our commitment to outstanding service, genuine concern and personal attention to the families we serve, we have been able to build and will continue to build strong and lasting relationships with the community.

The information we have provided on this website will help you learn more about us and hopefully help you or a family member make informed decisions before you have need of our services. Whether you need information about products and services, or lookup online obituaries and the guestbooks for deceased relatives or friends, we hope that by visiting us here, you find your experience to be both informative and helpful.
Thanks again for allowing us to serve this community.

Robbie and Rhonda Bennett
