Always a family-owned business, Oliver Funeral Home was established in January 2007 when John Oliver bought the Centralia and Sturgeon funeral homes from Bill and Mary Ann Meador.
From 2008 to 2012 the funeral homes went through periods of remodeling. From the new roofs, carpet, concrete, and sound systems, we were able to rededicate our Centralia location. Later we added a complete York Room to display our caskets, vaults and urns. Finally in October 2012 we were able to add a brand new parking area in Centralia, MO.
Our goal is to be a funeral homethat will not only raise the bar in our industry, but will serve the needs of each and every family we serve.
Our research indicates that consumers typically feel intimidated by tradition full-sized casket display rooms. One of the most important benefits is the increased comfort for families, who find the YMS system much less distressing than traditional selection rooms. It is a result that goes to the heart of funeral service: helping families deal with one of life’s most painful experiences. The YMS display provides a warm, comforting environment that helps consumers feel at ease. All the information they need to make a confident decision is clearly displayed and easy to understand.
