Cress Funeral & Cremation

Humbly, we believe Cress has a unique responsibility to honor the dignity of the deceased, to aid and counsel the family in time of grief, to encourage remembrance with each family within its own traditions, culture and financial means.

As a family owned company with a long legacy of helping and supporting family and friends experiencing bereavement, we understand that a family needs someone to turn to in a moment’s notice. Someone who truly cares and has the ability and resources to offer exemplary services. Many things have changed since our beginning in 1869, but what hasn’t changed is our commitment to being here every step of the way for the bereaved in our communities when they need us most.

Thank you for all your idea’s and making our wants come true for George’s memorial service. I will be sure and let others know of the kindness of you & Cress Funeral Home.

From the moment you extended your hand and lovely smile to our grieving mom and sister until the final hug after Jeff’s funeral we knew you were special.

You made our time somehow manageable, with efficiency, professionalism, and a deep sense of ethics. I keep telling people that I have a funeral director to recommend.

We are having difficulty expressing our gratitude but please know we are so overwhelmed with the service you provided us in this time of need.

David’s passing was a shock to all of us. In a state of confusion you helped us bring peace, honor and respect to David.

Thank you so much for the excellent care you took in handling the funeral arrangements for Earl. Your attention to every detail was so personal to us.
