Imagine a funeral home where all the guests are like family, where you feel at ease, appreciated and like a friend. Envision a funeral home that embraces funeral traditions while meeting the needs of all generations. Picture a funeral home that is large enough to serve families yet is bright and comfortable like home.

At Merkle Funeral Service, we treat you like family, not a number because this isn't just a business; this is our way of life. Excellent service is so important to us; we put it in our name.

Merkle Funeral Service can meet the needs of our families with conveniences such as: a full service florist, professional catering, valet parking and a warm familiar face to greet your guests. We can also meet the needs of our community by providing a comfortable, intimate place for functions such as Bible studies, ladies' gatherings and coffee hours for socializing.

Imagine a funeral home where educating the consumer about value and options take precedent over everything else.

One doesn't need to imagine anymore. Merkle is "Monroe's Premier Service Provider."

We invite you to visit one of our four convenient facilities. Merkle Funeral Service is different; we are making a fresh start for funeral service in Monroe County!

Please feel free to browse our pages to learn more about advanced planning a funeral and grief support, as well as the traditional funeral and cremation services that we have to offer.  If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us at anytime, we are available by phone or e-mail, or drop by the office in person.  We are always here to help.

We understand that it is not always possible to attend a service or visitation in person, so we encourage you to use our beautifully designed interactive online tributes to pay your respects. Leave a condolence, share a memory, post a photo, light a candle and more!
