Our Staff

A Personal Relationship 
When a family suffers the loss of a loved one, it can be comforting to know your funeral director. This is our business, our hometown. We take great personal pride in making our funeral home the best it can be. It is very important to us not only to fill your current needs but to build a relationship so you will return to us in the future. We have a long-term commitment to this community. This is where we live, and this is where we plan to stay.

 

Long Term Commitment 
For more than forty years, we have been honored whenever a family selects our firm to serve their needs. Forty years ago we made a promise to the community to provide the highest level of service while maintaining the level of professionalism that has come to be expected from our firm, to families at their greatest hour of need. Today we vow to continue that same care that has earned us the reputation that we carry on today.

 

A Focus on Families, Not Profits 
Large corporations answer to shareholders. We answer to you. In our family owned company, there is no pressure from the corporate headquarters to increase profits. We understand our business will do well when we serve you well.

A funeral service should reflect the life of the person who is being remembered. We have established a tradition of assisting families in planning a ceremony that reflects and individual's life with dignity and meaning. Personalization can be realized simply by choosing the most appropriate services and products available. Our concerned staff will help you to make the decisions necessary, offering personalized guidance throughout all phases of the arrangements process.

At Caniff Funeral Home, we provide extraordinary service and compassionate care to families during their time of great need.
