Local Impact of Family Ownership

When a family decides to open their own business – be it a restaurant, a bookstore, 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 customers. 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 Homes 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.

Since then, our family has continued to serve our Springfield and Sherman  neighbors with that same commitment to quality personal attention. Funeral home owners Paul John Staab II, Mark Staab, and Suanne Staab are diligent about carrying on the legacy of ownership that came before them.

Our care team, it’s about excelling in our service to families, our service to the community, providing helpful resources, and continuing the support after the funeral – and you’d be surprised how significantly this affects our community.

When you come to Staab Funeral Homes, you can expect a personal touch. Families who need assistance planning a funeral, burial, and 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. We are proud to be a multiple recipient of the Pursuit of Excellence Award, the highest honor presented by the National Funeral Directors Association.

At Saab 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.
