What Our Families Say: TESTIMONIALS
Thank you for the funeral services you provided to the family of Bertha M. Brown.
I was blessed to come into Palmer Funeral Home and do pre-need funeral arrangements for my mother. Shauna walked me through everything and took the time to inform me on costs and services that I would need.
When Mom transitioned, the funeral home picked her body up from Creekside and displayed professionalism from start to finish. My mother looked like she was sleeping, and everyone who attended her wake and funeral services were impressed with the services. Some have even expressed that they were going to transfer their arrangements to Palmer from other funeral homes. I will make sure all of our family uses your services when the need arises.
Of all the things you can do for your family, planning and funding your funeral may be one of the most considerate and caring. Planning and funding your funeral will ease your family's thoughts, and comfort them in their time of loss. It's something you can do now, it's easy, and it's affordable. Make the right choice for those you love.
The initial cemetery had its first burial in 1836. In 1909, the Palmer's Prairie Cemetery was founded and more acreage was purchased. In 1924, additional land was needed and a group of area businessmen formed a corporation, issued shares of stock for capital, purchased 45 acres, and the cemetery was renamed Southlawn Cemetery.
The loss of a pet can be very emotional. It is only appropriate to say farewell in a meaningful way. In April of 2010, K. R. and Kerry Palmer founded a local cemetery and crematory strictly for pets. As a locally owned, family operated business, we are able to provide sensitive care and respect for your pet.
