What Our Families Say: TESTIMONIALS

Our family would like to take the time to say Thank You... No time, as you know, is easy to sit down and try to prepare a funeral service...but thankfully for my sister-in-law, we had her facility she lived with do a pre-arrangement, which helped with the arrangements so much...and Donna she is truly amazing, she made sure every thing went perfect ....from her dress, to the music and pictures... Our family has always been spoiled by Kerry, but we know its hard because he is so busy but even so...he always takes the time to stop by give you that smile of caring and also of compassion and the giant hug you need so much. His family we know are so proud of him, he shines with all he does, Bless him always. But Palmers has always stood up to their name and reputation....they are such loving and good people from the time you walk into their business you are blessed, and thankful.

Southlawn Cemetery

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.

Pet Services

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.
