Announcements ~ Pandemic Update
At Koch Funeral Home, we recognize that amid this pandemic, we all have fears and concerns for the safety of our families and loved ones. Unfortunately, death and grief do not pause during a crisis. For 107 years, Koch Funeral Home has been taking care of members of this community and we stand ready to help you now. We will remain open and our experienced, caring staff will continue assisting families during this critical time.
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 understand 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.
Please let us know how we can be of service to you.

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 “springtimes.”
As Joyce Rupp and Macrina Wiederkehr describe below, we have to wait for our springtimes.
We don’t want you to feel alone while you’re waiting.
Our Helping Grieving Hearts Heal program provides opportunities for you to be a part of such a community – a safe place for you to share with others and others to share with you.

Welcome to our website!
We are happy to welcome you to the Koch Funeral Home website. We hope you find it user friendly and informative.
We have learned that meaningful funeral experiences are an important first step on your grieving journey. Other steps include taking the grief you feel on the inside and expressing it on the outside, or mourning in ways that are significant to you. To help encourage you and others on these journeys, Koch Funeral Home partnered with Jackie Hook and created Helping Grieving Hearts Heal program. This program helps and supports individuals as they grieve.
