Who we are
Learn more about our dedicated, professional staff
Our founder, Morris Eickenhorst, loved this community and was passionate about serving it—a passion he pursued during much of his life through his involvement in and dedication to many local organizations. Though most of his career was spent in the lumber industry, it had been his lifelong dream to open a funeral home that could provide families with excellent service at an affordable price. In May of 2010 that dream became a reality when Eickenhorst Funeral Services opened its doors.
Morris passed away in 2011, shortly after realizing his dream of opening this funeral home. He always said that the funeral industry is more than just a business—it's a calling. And we live by that sentiment. We are committed to the same high moral and ethical standard that Morris lived by and put into practice when leading us and establishing this firm. Our goal at Eickenhorst Funeral Services is to extend the obvious love Morris held for this community through the services we provide you and your family.

Funeral Director/ Embalmer
Rebecca Coker was born and raised in a small town outside of Pittsburgh, PA. After her own loss and experiencing the compassion and comfort that a funeral director/ embalmer provided her with, she knew that was what she wanted to become—someone who could help and show comfort and compassion, all while guiding a family through the worst pain of their lives. She enrolled in the Commonwealth Institute of Funeral Services and became a member of the National Funeral Service honor roll, as well as a certified crematory operator; and upon graduation, a licensed funeral director and embalmer. Rebecca is dedicated to providing families with the most support she can. When she is not serving families, you can find her walking the trails at Sam Houston National Forest, reading, or spending time with her daughters and grandkids.
