History & Staff

Our History

With over twenty eight years of experience as a funeral director, I was blessed with the opportunity to open All Faiths Funeral Home in March 2000.  All Faiths Funeral Home is committed to providing service to people of all faiths while serving the entire Grand Island area and surrounding communities. We have earned the reputation of honoring every family and loved one with great honor and respect and we take great pride building trust and lifetime relationships.  Earning a solid reputation is who we were; now keeping that reputation is our continued commitment.

A funeral should be about celebrating life and giving thanks for the life lived and loved.  All Faiths Funeral Home helps create those healing moments during times of remembrances.
