    Sweet little Sheila, know her if you see her. Often thought of her through the years. We grew up on Copelend Street just a few houses down the street from the Joyce family. Attended school with Sheila growing up. Always a joy! So sorry for your loss!

    Sheila will be very missed. She kept us in line during the Christmas fleet run as the Scrooge. Great fond memories of her. So sorry for your loss.

what our families say

Tiffany Foster went out of her way to fulfill all my requests, talked me through problems I was facing, and tried to make me feel as comfortable as possible when I was a wreck, totally crushed, and I thank her with all of my heart for that.

The professional manner of the staff made a difficult time a little easier.

Services provided for both parents were perfect, on time, and no issues. Brenda is awesome and strong!

Michael M. | July 2020

Skyler was absolutely amazing. She was so caring and helpful through this whole process. She even went above and beyond to meet with us in DeForest and even to make a stop at our home to drop off or pick up anything needed. While it was a small gesture, it was so helpful and greatly appreciated.
