DeBaun Funeral Homes & Crematory

Best Funeral Home

Thank You Once again the readers of the Tribune-Star has voted DeBaun Funeral Homes and Crematory as the best funeral home. My parents taught me a valuable business lesson early in life, and that is it is not how fancy a building you have, or having the newest hearse, or anything physical that makes a great funeral home, but it is the people inside of it. I would like the to thank our staff for all of their hard work and the care which they show the families that we serve. The funeral business is not an easy one, sometimes being on call 24 hours a day, and sometimes having to leave your family at dinner time, or your kids on Christmas morning, but yet keeping a smile on your face and a good disposition. Because no matter how bad a day we are having, we are dealing with families who are having the worst time of their lives, and we need to help. Thank you to everyone at work. You earned the award. Sincerely,

Curt, Debbie, and Seth DeBaun
