Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.
Ever since we opened our doors we have approached life (and death) differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a burial ground. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.
In a nutshell? Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy.
We've learned a lot over many years. Like how to present options without overwhelming. And how to meet the needs of many caring parties. People come to us in difficult times, and we respond kindness, calmness and expertise. Our goal is to create a beautiful occasion and make you feel welcome, always. We spend our days planning with families. We stay up to date with industry developments. And we make hard times a little easier.

Morris Eickenhorst, the founder of Eickenhorst Funeral Serivices, recently passed away following a 19 month battle with cancer. He created this firm with a strong desire to serve our community, a passion that he pursued during much of his life through his involvement in and dedication to many local organizations. Morris believed that families should not have to empty their wallets in order to properly mourn a loved one. He considered the funeral service as more than just a business - it was a calling. He did whatever it took to ensure you saved money and felt completely satisfied with our service. We encourage you to visit our Obituary page and read about our founder's extraordinary life.
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.
