Pursuing excellence

Welcome to the freshly redesigned website of Rush Funeral Home. I would like to encourage you to explore it as you will find it convenient and useful.
We have decided to redesign the website as one more step toward building the excellence of our services.
It is designed to educate, inform, and assist the public in making funeral arrangements.  Take a look at our various chapels, order flowers, look at local church  information, or learn what benefits veterans are entitled to,  or what assistance social security can give.
While you're here, take some time to view obituaries and sign the register book of that individual, view caskets and vaults,  prearrange a service, and take a look at the different options Rush Funeral Home has to personalize a service.
If you have any questions that this web site cannot answer, feel free to call or e-mail.
best regards

Daniel J. Rush

 

 Questions and answers

Do funeral directors take advantage of the bereaved? 

Funeral directors are caring individuals who help people deal with a very stressful time. They serve the same families 80% of the time, and many have spent most of their lives in the same community. If they took advantage of bereaved families, they could not stay in business. The fact that the average funeral home has been in business over 59 years shows that most funeral directors respect the wishes of the bereaved families.
