|Jean Kimak, Proprietor (Unlicensed and not qualified to make funeral arrangements, embalm, or conduct funerals)|
In the year of 1973, we learned of a funeral home in Carlstadt that was for sale. After many months of negotiations, we closed in December just after the birth of my fourth child.
Living in a funeral home with small children was a challenge and so was getting established. Thanks to this friendly community that welcomed us, our business grew along with the children. I am extremely proud of what we all have accomplished over the past forty years.
I consider my most important role here is to be a source of comfort to families in their time of need. I am usually on the premises to answer your calls or to greet you upon visiting. Welcome to our home!
