Our History

Founder of Phillips Funeral Home Standing in Front of Horse Drawn Hearse Late 1800's.

The name Phillips Funeral Home has, for many years, been considered synonymous with competence and caring in the funeral industry. Our reputation is built upon five generations of family commitment to the community we serve.

This commitment is deeply rooted in the work ethic and values of our founder, James Phillips Sr., who began the business as a combination furniture and undertaking operation in the late 1880's.

The funeral home is proudly the oldest business in the area and one of the oldest and successful family owned funeral homes in the nation.

We are committed to providing a thoughtful and quality service that is deeply respectful of the deceased and which offers a caring response to the needs and desires of the family.
