C opher-Fesler-May Funeral Home is centrally located in Elwood just south of the downtown area on beautifully restored Anderson Street. Our colonial-style building is well landscaped with plenty of off-street parking, which is brightly illuminated at night. A ramp entrance just off of the parking area provides easy access for all patrons visiting the funeral home - even wheelchairs and motorized carts.
With major remodeling projects completed in 2000, 2005, and 2009 - great care has been taken to maintain a comfortable environment with a "home-like" atmosphere. Our 10,000 square-foot facility consists of a large foyer reception area, two convenient coat rooms with space for over 180 coats, and three spacious chapels to easily accommodate multiple services. In addition, there is a planning office, casket display room, and two separate lounges located near the main chapels where families can enjoy coffee, food, and complimentary soft drinks. Restrooms are fully handicapped accessible and bottled water service is provided. In 2006, a large children’s playroom was completed for the benefit of parents with small children who need a place to relax and play. Various furniture groupings throughout the funeral home make conversations easy and comfortable.
In addition to the public areas, we have a large administrative office and complete preparation facilities where all work is carefully performed by our own staff. A large, heated garage protects our modern fleet of professional vehicles, and a Brinks commercial security system keeps all of our buildings safe and secured. Our funeral home is completely equipped with state-of-the-art audio and video technology components. With complete recording capabilities, all funeral services are audio recorded for the benefit of family members, and soft background music heard by guests helps to comfort their visit to the funeral home. In 2007, large, flat-screen monitors were installed in each chapel in order to provide a meaningful way of projecting Life Tribute Memorial Videos during visitations and funeral services.
We invite you to visit us at any time to view our facility, discuss pre-arrangements, or just ask questions that you might have. Our goal is to make a difficult time as easy as possible for every member of your family.
