Local Impact of Family Ownership

When a family decides to open their own business – be it a restaurant, a paint store, or a funeral home – they put their hearts and souls into their work. They rely on positive word of mouth to expand and find new patrons, customers and clients. Neighbors telling neighbors about a positive experience. Locals who recommend products or services to their friends, family, and coworkers.

That was certainly the case for Staab Funeral Home’s founder George Staab and his wife Christine, who opened our funeral home back in 1937. He worked hard to build a business he could be proud of, instilling in his children a strong sense of values and a passion for giving back to our community.  We are certainly proud to be Springfield’s oldest funeral firm still owned and operated by the founding family. 

Since then, our family has continued to serve our Greater Springfield  neighbors with that same commitment to quality personal attention. Funeral home family associates, PJ Staab II, Mark Staab, Suanne Staab-Palazzolo, Paul Staab III, Lauren Staab and Parker Staab are diligent about carrying on the legacy of ownership that came before them.

Our care team is focused on excelling our service to families, to the community, providing helpful resources, and continuing the support after the funeral – and you’d be surprised how significantly this affects our community.  Your loved one receives the greatest care with our family, and that commitment to care extends to the greater Springfield community.

When you come to Staab Funeral Homes, you can expect a personal touch. Families who need assistance planning a funeral, burial, or cremation one deserve the help of professionals who understand their culture, lifestyle, and values. Because of our local roots, that’s the kind of care we provide. We are passionate about helping those who come to us because they are our friends, our neighbors, a part of our community.

The families we serve mean everything to us. It goes without saying that a corporate-owned funeral home cannot possibly invest in families the same way as a family-owned funeral home. After all, our hands-on approach at Staab Funeral Homes is all about you – not meetings quotas or increasing merchandise sales. We know our success depends on how we treat each family we serve. We are connected to the day-to-day happenings and truly care about each person who picks up the phone to contact us or walks through our doors.

The difference between us and other funeral homes is trust. Keeping your confidence is our deepest commitment. We are caring, experienced professionals dedicated to handling every detail with precision.  Staab’s ethics are of the highest degree, you know we will make the best choice for you and your loved one, even if you are not watching.  We are proud to be a recipient of many leadership awards on the local, state and national level, which shows our commitment to exceeding client family’s expectations.

At Staab Funeral Homes , we are proud of our story, our history of service, and carrying on the legacy of care and compassion. If you need our assistance now or are considering putting your own funeral plans in place ahead of time, we are here to help. Assisting our neighbors in our community isn’t a job to us – it is our calling. We consider it an honor to be there for families like yours.
