Our Mission:  
To compassionately serve and guide families with our experience and knowledge as they honor their loved ones.

Spring is a time of awakenings and new life.  

If you’ve lost a loved one, we are acutely aware that you might not be having a “spring” experience this year. 

Koch Funeral Home is here to support and companion you from the time you begin planning how to honor and memorialize your loved one until you begin finding more “springs” in your life.

 Funeral Director, Supervisor

"The experience to serve you better, the compassion to understand your needs".

Part of my work is about helping you find more “springs” in your life.

From co-creating a personalized service with you to companioning you on your grief journey, I hold hope that you’ll find new pieces of light and eventual “spring times.”

As Parker Palmer describes below, the days leading up to beautiful spring can be messy.

We don’t want you to feel alone in this mess.

Jackie Hook, MA
Spiritual Director and Celebrant

There is a hard truth to be told: before spring becomes beautiful, it is plug ugly, nothing but mud and muck. I have walked in the early spring through fields that will suck your boots off, a world so wet and woeful it makes you yearn for the return of ice. But in that muddy mess, the conditions for rebirth are being created.

~ Parker Palmer


A grief reaction is loneliness. 
How do you face summer, a time for fun, vacations and get aways as you did in the past?

We do not remember days, we remember moments.
