Happy 110th Anniversary Koch Funeral Home! Read More >>>
Our Mission: To compassionately serve and guide families with our experience and knowledge as they honor their loved ones.
Sadly, there have been reports in Pennsylvania of scammers targeting families who have experienced a recent death. Using published obituaries and posing as a member of a funeral home staff, the scammers tell families they owe an additional $1,000 and/or ask for credit card information to pay for a liability insurance policy to cover an upcoming funeral or memorial service.
Please remember, you have a signed purchase agreement with us outlining the costs so we will not call to ask for additional money. If you receive any suspicious calls, please call us at 814-237-2712.
One of the many things we do is help you tell the story of your loved one’s life.
We want to help you memorialize them in a meaningful way.
We do this important work with care.
Please let us know how we can help.

After the services are over, grief and mourning include the need to continue telling stories – such as stories of your loved one, stories of your life together, stories of their death, and new stories of how you’re making your life good again.
Storytelling has long been considered a healing art.
Our Helping Grieving Hearts Heal program provides opportunities for you to tell your stories and heal.
